Sarnia has topped the lists of ‘bests’ in a variety of categories over a handful of centuries.

Once known as the home of North America’s best oil drillers and producers and twice named one of the best places to live in Canada, Sarnia is the current reigning champion of the world’s largest solar farm.

Situated in one of North America’s prized Carolinian bio zones and along the shores of Lake Huron, Sarnia is usually known for its longstanding petrochemical industry. In recent years, however, with the growth of the clean alternative energy field, a budding arts culture and celebrated community college, a new and diverse identity has come to life.

With over 72,000 neighbours calling Sarnia home, locals and visitors alike have much to experience and enjoy.
