NEW this year!  Spotlight can also be viewed as a virtual book.  Search the indices at the front for a particular company or product, click your selection and it will take you to that company’s ad.  You can still search for a supplier using the searchable online version of Spotlight , which contains additional info about the company.


Now’s the time to get into Spotlight 2024!

The deadline for new ads and renewals is fast approaching.  Act fast so you don’t get missed.  More info about advertising in Spotlight 2024 can be found here.

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, the online virtual book, and in the searchable online version of Spotlight, for triple the exposure at 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 2024 edition!  Unlike most periodicals, Spotlight has a “shelf life” of 1 year.
  • In addition to an ad in the print and virtual versions, advertisers receive a listing in the searchable online version of Spotlight, where their ad is displayed with additional company information.
