For the current provincial electoral district, see Kenora—Rainy River (provincial electoral district).

Kenora—Rainy River was a federal electoral district represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1925 to 2004. It was located in the province of Ontario. This riding was created in 1924 from parts of Fort William and Rainy River and Port Arthur and Kenora ridings.

It initially consisted of the parts of the territorial districts of Kenora and Rainy River lying west of the fifth meridian passing between the townships of Melgund and Revell.

In 1933, it was redefined as consisting of the part of the province of Ontario lying west of the fourth meridian including Sioux Lookout, Ignace and Atikokan.

In 1966, it was redefined as consisting of the western parts of the territorial districts of Rainy River and Kenora west of a line drawn (from south to north) beginning at the Duluth, Winnipeg and Pacific Railway bridge and ending at the northern limit of the province.

In 1976, it was redefined as consisting of the western parts of the Territorial Districts of Kenora, Rainy River and Thunder Bay.

The electoral district was abolished in 2003 when it was redistributed between Kenora and Thunder Bay—Rainy River ridings.
