Welcome to Emo, Ontario
The Township of Emo is located in Lash Township, along the Rainy River, directly north of the state of Minnesota.
The closest bridge connecting the two countries is located at Fort Frances which is approximately 30 minutes from Emo. Another international bridge is located in Rainy River, approximately 40 minutes west from Emo.
Emo provides a full range of services including a school, hospital, library, bank, medical & dental clinics, recreation centre, commerce and waterfront development to the growing, dynamic community. This provides a desirable atmosphere for individuals employed in other industries outside of Emo, but wanting to live in a rural environment.
The Township of Emo's existence is based on natural resources (agriculture, mining and forestry). Emo, because of its geographic location, serves as the main service center for the agricultural needs of the Rainy River District, and as an important service center for the tourist industry.
