Lambton College is located on the beautiful homeland that is the traditional territory of the Ojibwe, Potawatomi and Odawa First Nations. These three individual Nations make up the traditional Three Fires Confederacy. We acknowledge the grace and the welcome they have offered to all students, staff and guests at Lambton College.

With a mission of student and community success, Lambton College offers a growing roster of more than 90 diploma, certificate and degree programs to a diverse student population of more than 13,000 at two main campuses in Sarnia and two in the Greater Toronto Area. Essential work has been done to ensure a College environment that is welcoming and supportive to Indigenous learners.

Much of Lambton College’s ongoing success can be attributed to career-focused programming, exceptional faculty and staff, and a recent campus revitalization that has resulted in world-class facilities.
