Red Lake We invite you to make this your new home

Testimonials

We moved to Red Lake over 6 years ago, what an adventure this has been and what a big change from what we are used to coming from Costa Rica. The Red lake community welcomed us and helped us settled in this unknown northern town as soon as we came in, we made friends very easily our friends here had become our family away from home. Everyone has welcome and shown interest to learn our culture, language, food, etc. as much as possible even how to Salsa dance, they've made us feel special as immigrants and that we are an important addition to this community.

The weather of course was a big shock, but in Red Lake we really experience the winter to its fullest, ice fishing, skiing, curling, hockey, toboggan, even thou we lived in southern ontario for a couple years before Red Lake, we never experienced true canadian living like we do here. Summer is definitely short but very full of outdoor activities, every day after work its like cottage living, go for a walk and finish it up with a refreshing swim in the lake, or just go for a relaxing boat ride and great fishing; nothing better than catching your own fresh dinner; also, weekends competing in the baseball tournaments, volleyball, soccer, camping in your own backyard, wildlife is very close around us, it reminds us of our home country it makes us feel like home even thou we are thousands of miles away, we love it here and look forward to spending many years to come.

In Red Lake we really experience the winter to its fullest; ice fishing, skiing, curling, hockey, and tobogganing. Even though we lived in southern Ontario for a couple years before coming to Red Lake, we never experienced true Canadian living like we do here. Summer is definitely short but very full of outdoor activities. Every day after work it’s like cottage living. We go for a walk and finish it up with a refreshing swim in the lake, or just go for a relaxing boat ride and great fishing; nothing better than catching your own fresh dinner. At weekends, we compete in baseball tournaments, volleyball, soccer, camping in our own backyard and wildlife is very close around us. It reminds us of our home country and makes us feel at home even though we are thousands of miles away. We really love it here and look forward to spending many years to come.
