Nestled in the midst of Northwestern Ontario’s Lake of the Woods, the site Kenora rests on today had been the territory of the Ojibway, and was first seen by a European in 1688. By 1732, the area saw its first French trading post. The Hudson’s Bay Company established itself there in 1836, and by 1878, was coined ‘Rat Portage’. In 1905, the community amalgamated with nearby towns, changing its name to ‘Kenora’: a combination of the first two letters of Keewatin, Norman, and Rat Portage. Today the city is known as “North America’s Premier Boating Destination”.
