Sarnia: The Place You Want to Be!

Situated on the shores of Lake Huron where it meets the St. Clair River, Sarnia is Ontario’s hub for the traditional petro chemical industry and the emerging bio chemical and clean energy economy. Sarnia is a community propelled by leading science and innovative collaboration. The Western Sarnia-Lambton Research Park, Bioindustrial Innovation Canada and Lambton College are among the leaders building an innovation bridge to a new economy in this beautiful waterfront community.

Noted for its breathtaking sky-blue water and beautiful waterfront, Sarnia is a  border community with easy access to the United States. By rail, air, road and water, Sarnia is accessible to major markets and communities in Canada and the U.S.

Home to a population of 72,000 residents, the City of Sarnia offers a great quality of life with affordable living, excellent schools and healthcare facilities, and a thriving arts and culture scene together with exceptional recreation and leisure services. Sarnia strikes a balance between the feel of a close-knit community and a community on the move. It’s easy to see why home is where the heart is, as Sarnia provides loved places and spaces with an international flavour, on spectacular blue water.

About 1 hour north of Detroit, Michigan and 1 hour west of London, Ontario, Sarnia enjoys one of the warmest climates in Canada. The great outdoors awaits in this 4-season City where residents enjoy swimming at public beaches in the summer, strolling through woodland trails in the fall, snowshoeing in winter, and visiting our gardens and parks in the spring. In Sarnia and surrounding area, you will find some of the best produce available in Canada - farm-fresh and appealing to foodies of all ages and pallets.

The best of Sarnia is featured in a series of three videos showcasing the natural beauty of Sarnia, the lifestyle of our residents, and the strategic advantages for business.
