Dryden

Trip Planner Canada  /  Ontario  /  Kenora District  /  Dryden
Dryden is the second-largest city in the Kenora District of Northwestern Ontario, Canada, located on Wabigoon Lake. It is the smallest community in the province of Ontario designated as a city. It and Kenora are the only two cities in Ontario located in the Central Time Zone.Dryden is entirely surrounded by Unorganized Kenora District.HistoryThe Dryden area is part of the Ojibwe nation, which covers a large area from Lake Huron in the east to Lake of the Woods and beyond, bordered by Cree from the north, and Sioux from the south. The Ojibwe are a nomadic culture, groups from family to village size moving over the land with the seasons and the availability of game or the necessities of life, so lasting settlements were not made.It is believed that the Bending Lake/Turtle River area was a meeting place for Indigenous peoples ranging from as far away as the southern US and much of central Canada for trade and cultural exchange, and there is evidence of ancient occupancy there in the form of pictographs, artifacts, burial grounds, and one might consider this our prehistoric centre. Bending Lake is in the triangle between Dryden, Ignace, and Atikokan.
