Pet events hosted and produced by pet people.
Meet our team of pet enthusiasts, striving to make the Expo a fantastic and fun-filled day for you, your family, and your family pets!
Whether supporting families in researching new pet companions for their homes or advocating for pet retailers and those pet families for the past 35 years. They strive to produce events for future, past, present and those that wish to commit and share their lives for family pet companions with a focus on responsible pet companionship.
“Some of the greatest moments of the pet focused events we produce is when we see families engaging with one another doing the research to better their knowledge and in turn offering greater enrichment for their pet family member”
Grant and Yvonne Crossman
Still a fan of all things creepy crawly, Elizabeth switched gears and now shares her home with her favourite canine herding breeds: Skye (red merle Border-Aussie), Willow (Red Bicolour Border-Aussie) and Beryl (Australian Shepherd). Rounding out the crew are a black rescue cat (Jinx), two English Angora bunnies (Coke and Deliliah), and two Red Eared Slider Turtles living in our backyard pond. It’s busy and that’s how she likes it!
Coming from an educational background in Events, Danielle jumped at the opportunity to become involved with the Canadian Pet Expo – she feels that there is nothing more satisfying than being able to watch a project that you have worked so hard on come to life and be enjoyed by thousands of people! Her favourite part about the Expos is getting to work alongside an incredible team and having the opportunity to connect with the various types of pet lovers that come to our shows!
Fran wishes she was as laid back as her dog, who doesn’t worry about much as long as he has dinner and a comfortable place to sleep! However, when he needs to work, he goes all out and makes sure he does his best, which is what she knows how to do at each show. He knows how to bring out the best in people, which is what she also hopes to do.
He started working in the pet industry at a pet store in Ottawa in 2019 and remained there in the reptile department until joining the Canadian Pet Expo team.
His favorite thing about the Expos is seeing everybody from the different pet niches come together as a community and seeing all the cool reptiles, of course!
His favourite aspect of the Canadian Pet Expo is the community. He greatly enjoys meeting, talking to, and learning from the like-minded vendors and guests.
