The City of Kenora launched its new website today.

The newly designed website is intended to make the City’s site cleaner and simpler, as well as refocus the content on city services and core functions for all stakeholders while meeting and exceeding the current website accessibility standards.

Kenora.ca was redesigned as a community portal in 2012.  A review of its content has been carried out over the last several months with City staff contributing to edits and suggestions for new information with a focus on the quality and accessibility of the content provided.

Website statistics were analyzed to discover the most explored pages, along with inquiries made by the public for information they are interested in on our site. With that research, the City has added new information has, such as snow removal schedule and maps, accessibility information, age-friendly community, volunteer firefighter recruitment, common by-laws for residents, disruptions and closures, and citizenship awards.

There's also a 'what's new' blog that will feature press releases, events and public notices.

New features include:
- Look Ahead Navigation - to reduce the number of clicks to explore the site
- Social media pull-out
- Latest news ticker
- Department contacts on each page
- Website feedback form
- Responsive Functionality for compatibility with all browsers and mobile devices
- Sign up for alerts & news
- Improved City event calendar
- Font size adjustment option

A search tool is also being planned for sometime in 2017.
