Kenora Trip

Due to popular demand, we are excited to announce that we will be hosting another road trip to Kenora, Ontario! 

This trip will give an example of the diverse landscapes found in Canada. You will notice almost immediately after crossing the border into Ontario how the flat, comfortable plains of Manitoba, with its vast prairie skies and seemingly endless farmland transition to rolling hills, massive rocky formations and scenic lakes.

Tickets are $50.00 per person. You can purchase tickets from the ISS office (491 Portage Ave, 8th floor) cash only. 

Space is limited, so purchase tickets now if you are interested.

When: June 15th (Depart Winnipeg at 8:00 am, depart Kenora at 5:00 pm).

Contact us if you have any questions (iss@uwinnipeg.ca)
