About Spotlight

Highlight in the Spotlight

Spotlight is Ontario’s largest directory of products and services for municipal public works. Since 1987 this directory has provided municipal and private sector staff a convenient and comprehensive ‘marketplace’ where qualified suppliers can promote their products and services.  Spotlight is developed, organized and distributed by the dedicated volunteers on the Spotlight Committee.  Over 4,000 copies are distributed annually to our community of public works professionals.  All new ads in Spotlight are also displayed on the searchable online version of Spotlight, for double the exposure!

For our members, public works associates and suppliers Spotlight offers many benefits including:

  • Hundreds of Canadian and Ontario business advertisements.
  • Alphabetical listing of over 100 categories of public works related products and services.
  • List of municipal contacts in all local associations (i.e. AORS membership directory).
  • Direct mailing to 2,000+ contacts across Ontario.
  • Distribution at Local Association meetings and many large trade shows and conferences.
  • Very competitive advertising rates. Unlike most periodicals, Spotlight has a “shelf life” of 1 year.
  • In addition to an ad in the print copy, advertisers receive one or more listings in the searchable online version of Spotlight, and their ad is displayed with their company information.

It’s too late to advertise in the 2021 print edition of Spotlight, but we can still add you to the online directory.  Please contact us with your request.  Stay tuned for info on advertising in the 2022 edition of Spotlight.

Thank you to the volunteers on the Spotlight Committee for their hard work, and to all the companies and organizations that advertise in Spotlight for their support.
