District 26 Kenora was formed in 1975. Our members include those who work in and retire from education – including child care and early years, schools and school boards, post-secondary, private schools and more. We play a key role in helping members stay active and connected – with each other and the community.

District 26 is situated on the traditional territory of the Ojibway/Chippewa peoples. We recognize this territory is covered by Treaty 3. We also acknowledge the urban Indigenous communities in our district.

District 26 Kenora recognizes the inequities connected to colonization and commits to working towards creating a just, inclusive and vibrant community for all.

We invite our members to reflect the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action.
