The average trip from Winnipeg to southern Ontario takes 3 days. First stop for the night would be Thunder Bay, second stop Sault Ste. Marie, then your final destination the third day. This gives you roughly 7-8 hours driving each day.

There are hotels and gas stations all along your route. Where do you want to find a hotel and what's your budget?

Winnipeg, Thunder Bay, & Sault Ste. Marie are all large communities with hotels and gas stations. Use google maps to find hotels on your route. Use gas buddy to find gas stations.

It's a well traveled route - you won't have problems.

For example: google maps with hotels in Thunder Bay:

Use the Nearby search tool to find hotels.

You are being very confusing ... first you say you are leaving from Winnipeg, then Regina, via Winnipeg. Which is it? Are you stopping for the night in Winnipeg or not?

Kenora is only 2.5 hours from Winnipeg. It makes some sense as a stop from Regina, but not Winnipeg. Kenora is also a smaller centre than the other locations mentioned, so accommodation availability will be limited.

You also haven't said when this trip is happening.

No you don't need a gas can - pay attention to your gauge and keep it filled up. And - use the resources available to you for planning - google maps & gasbuddy. We aren't doing all your work for you here.
