The town of Kenora sits peacefully on the Lake of the Woods, just two hours east of exciting Winnipeg. Kenora’s rich history dates back to the formation of its name. The former town, Rat Portage, merged with the neighbouring towns of Keewatin and Norman in 1905 to create the present day town of Kenora. The town also holds the title for smallest town to have won a major North American sports title for their 1907 Stanley Cup win.
“The best thing about living in Kenora is the closeness to nature. The Lake of the Woods is in your backyard. You just don’t get that experience in a big city.”
Kenora is home to one of the largest farmers markets in Northwestern Ontario. From mid June to early October, the Matiowski Farmers’ Market host just over 100 vendors every Wednesday.
A must see if travelling to Kenora is their outdoor sculpture, Huskie the Muskie. The Huskie was originally constructed in 1967, the sculpture stands 40 feet tall. The landmark was featured in the 2008 movie One Week.
