Forestry, tourism and mining are the three largest sectors of the Kenora economy. The population balloons in the spring and summer to almost double the normal population when summer residents move in. The Lake of the Woods and numerous smaller lakes situated all around Kenora are the major draw for cottagers who summer here. Many are from the neighbouring province of Manitoba and the state of Minnesota.
Kenora, a site of natural attractions, is home to visitors from all over the world year round. In the summer months visitors flock to the area to experience many different activities including swimming, biking, fishing, hiking, and boating. Kenora’s tourist industry is also active during the winter months as visitors come not only to observe its natural beauty but also to partake in ice fishing, snowboarding, skiing (both downhill and cross country) and snowmobiling.
The town of Rat Portage was amalgamated with the towns of Keewatin and Norman in 1905 to form the present-day City of Kenora. Kenora currently has a population of 15,096 people and is served by the Kenora Airport. The Kenora Airport Authority looks forward to welcoming you in October, 2018!

The layout plays to a par 72 with a 126 slope rating from the back. Three sets of tees offer distances from 5206 to 6333 yards providing a challenge for all skill levels. Shots must be played accurately, since the changes in elevation require the player to make proper club selection.

You can visit with representatives from a variety of companies and once registration is open those who will be a part of the Trade Show will be listed below.
