Fill out a nomination form online, or pick up a paper copy at City Hall (100 Newport Drive).

The Spike Business Awards celebrate the contribution of small businesses to the local community, and are typically presented at a gala each year during Small Business Week in Canada. This year, instead of recognizing the winners at a gala, members of Council will present each award separately during an in-person visit to the winner’s place of business. The City will announce the winners during Small Business Week, October 18 to 24, 2020.

Winners are selected by the City's Economic Development Committee. Businesses must have a valid Port Moody business licence to be eligible to win a Spike Business Award.
