Why advertise in 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 Spotlight ads are displayed  in the print edition and the online virtual book (coming soon!) – double the exposure for one low price!

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

  • Hundreds of businesses providing quality products, services and equipment to Ontario municipalities.
  • Alphabetical listing of over 60 categories of public works related products and services.
  • AORS Municipal Membership Directory
  • Direct mailing to 3000+ contacts across Ontario.
  • Distribution at Local Association meetings and many large trade shows and conferences.
  • Very competitive advertising rates, with no price increase for the 2025 edition!  Unlike most periodicals, Spotlight has a “shelf life” of 1 year.
