  • The only thing more contagious than a virus is HOPE

Thanks to Councillor McMillan  for sharing this quote. 😊
  • The “Keep Kenora Clean” clear bags are now available at the Transfer Station for those interested and able to clean up roadside litter.  The bags can be found on the north side of the summer kiosk.  There is no charge for the bags.

The clear bags are for roadside litter and debris clean up ONLY.  They CANNOT be used for household or personal garbage. 
The bags are “City Branded” so our staff can recognize them at a glance, as well as verify the contents.  City crews will collect the clear bags from the roadside and no bag tag is required.  You may also call the Transfer Station to alert them that you have left the bags in a particular area.

We thank all the volunteers who take time to keep Kenora clean each year.  We recognize that this year could be much different, with many in self-isolation, and there may not be the same number of volunteers picking up litter. 👉Please only go to the Transfer Station to pick up the clear bags if you are going out for other essential items. ✌️Remember to keep 2 metres physical distance from others when picking garbage and at the Transfer Station.

  • We cannot force someone to hear a message they are not ready to receive, but we must never underestimate the power of planting a seed. – anonymous. 
Let's plant seeds about what we need to do to keep our community safe.

Because it does now more than ever. 
  • Mayor Reynard and Council are pleased to acknowledge that as of this morning there are no known COVID-19 cases in Kenora. We believe this is due to the great response we have observed from the citizens of Kenora, and their adherence to the protocols that have been put in place related to social distancing and self-isolation.

We appreciate citizens are concerned during these uncertain times, and we are all adapting rapidly as the information surrounding this virus and the various levels of government enact changes to help us reduce its spread. We are following the direction of the Northwestern Health Unit, as well as the Governments of Ontario and Canada, on protocols and necessary precautions. We encourage you to follow social media for important announcements and messages from these levels, and share with those who do not have internet access.

As leaders, we have had to make significant adaptations to adhere to these recommendations by closing public spaces and altering service delivery in some areas. The City remains committed to maintaining as much of our “normal” activities and services as we are able, for as long as we are able. Maintaining this continuity of service provides stability and a sense of normalcy to both the public and our staff, during these uncertain times. Notwithstanding, we ask that if you see staff on the street, for example, maintaining roads, sidewalks, or ensuring parking regulations are being followed, please ensure you are socially distancing yourself from these staff. We also ask that you appreciate that we are operating with reduced staff. As is normal for staff this time of year, many took vacations during March and this has resulted in numerous staff off on self-isolation. As such, we ask for your patience in regard to routine maintenance, such as potholes. Our staff are working hard to address these issues, but delays in service should be expected. ➡️ Read the full Statement of Circumstances on Kenora.ca
