Kenora Hydro



Potential Postal Worker Strike

In the event of a mail delivery disruption, Kenora Hydro would like to remind customers that they are responsible to keep their utility accounts current. For those who normally mail their payment to us, the City of Kenora offers a number of convenient payment alternatives and we would encourage you to use these options during a postal service disruption.

Payment alternatives to postal mail include; pre-authorized chequing withdrawal, telephone and Internet banking and in person at financial institutions, as well as the cashier location and the after-hour drop box at 1 Main St S, City Hall.  You may also pay using a credit card through the City of Kenora Online Services page.  Note there is a convenience fee charged for this payment option.

Customers can also register with the “myAccount” section of the Kenora Hydro website, where they can view electronic copies of their Utility bills and monitor their account status, at their convenience.   You will receive an e-mailed bill each month, but you will still have access to print copies of your bills from the “myAccount” site.

You may contact our Customer Service representatives Monday – Friday 8:30 to 4:30 p.m. (excluding holidays) to obtain account details and information.  467-2000.
