The forestry sector hires all trades, truck drivers, machine operators and general labour. Many individuals in the Rainy River District are self employed working in logging or farming. Much of the land in the West Rainy River District is devoted to farming and land prices make it an affordable investment for a young family.
Residents also work in the Abitibi Bowater Mill in Fort Frances or Ainsworth Mill in Barwick. These businesses employ skilled trades, engineers and machine operators. Tourist camps in the district always have openings in the early spring for camp helpers, guides and cooks. Either by self employment or working for a freight company, residents often find employment driving transportation trucks.
