The Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership, a county-wide organization that includes representation through the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce, is launching a series of community consultation sessions continuing through early January 2020.

The sessions are designed to give residents of the Sarnia-Lambton area “to participate in the development of their community,” said SLEP CEO Stephen Thompson, who is pictured with Shirley de Silva, president and CEO of the Chamber.

With the intention of increasing economic activity in the region, the consultation sessions will offer residents to have a voice when it comes to the future of their community.

The consultations will supplement ongoing visits to businesses throughout the Sarnia-Lambton area and provide more information to promote economic opportunities across Lambton County.

The facilitated sessions all begin at 7 p.m.

—Point Edward at Optimist Hall (Wednesday, Oct. 16);
—Sarnia at Sarnia Arena Kiwanis Room (Wednesday, Oct. 23);
