The community's existing infrastructure and location on the Canada-United States border with close proximity to the metropolitan areas of Detroit and Toronto, make Sarnia-Lambton an ideal destination for business and allows for diversification into other sectors including alternative energy technologies, industrial bioproducts and value added agricultural products.
