About Us


Economic Development and Corporate Planning (EDCP) is responsible for the City’s economic development initiatives including Business Parks. An important role of EDCP is to work closely with the proponents of commercial and industrial development, to ensure that they have the information they need to make informed investment decisions and to expedite land acquisition and development approvals where necessary. EDCP also works closely with proponents where there is potential for public-private partnerships that would serve the interests of the City.

Other functions of EDCP include the administration and completion of major infrastructure projects required for newly developed lands and management of the Sarnia Chris Hadfield Airport and the Sarnia Harbour facilities.

Marketing initiatives for the City are also managed by EDCP. The Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership Office and EDCP work collaboratively to provide and create an atmosphere conducive to new and local business growth.

EDCP takes a lead role in City initiatives, such as the Sarnia Waterfront and Downtown Sarnia improvement projects including on-going discussions regarding the transfer of control of the Sarnia deepwater harbour from the federal government to the municipality.

For general inquiries or to communicate directly with us, you may contact the staff of the EDCP office at economic@sarnia.ca or call 519 332-0330 extension 3306 or 1-877-4-SARNIA.
