Sarnia-Lambton Named To International Top 21 List

Sarnia-Lambton, has, for the third year in a row, been named one of the World’s SMART21 Communities.

Others on the list include Australia’s Sunshine Coast, Kinmen County in Taiwan and Espoo, Finland.

Lambton County Warden Bill Weber says the Intelligent Community Forum, which selects the top 21, is a global network of cities and regions with a think tank at its center.

“ICF continues to recognize Lambton County as a community that uses technological and communicative innovation to work together to build a prosperous and equitable economy that can compete on the international stage,” says Weber. “This designation also recognizes Lambton’s ongoing efforts to build a sustainable community, where a broad offering of opportunities is available to all.”

There were over 400 communities in the running with only 21 named to the annual list.
