Sarnia: The Place You Want to Be

Situated on the shores of Lake Huron at the mouth of the St. Clair River, the City of Sarnia is noted for its breathtaking sky-blue water and beautiful waterfront parks.  A border community with a population of 72,000 residents, the City of Sarnia offers a high quality of life with affordable living, excellent schools, state-of-the-art healthcare facilities, a variety of cultural experiences, together with exceptional recreation and leisure services.

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.

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.
