A Natural Attraction
Mixed into the melting pot of Kenora is a Francophone community of 7%. In the past, Kenora had a French speaking club that was a member of the regional association, but in the recent years, it has not been active. Far away from Thunder Bay and without a French school, it is understandable to see the local Francophones struggling to keep an active and dynamic French-speaking community.
Despite all these obvious obstacles, there are still diehards of the French language in some businesses or professional services. Kenora is also a close neighbour of Winnipeg, a city where the French speaking community is thriving.
