2015 Spike Business Awards


2015 Port Moody Spike Awards

It’s no secret that there are some great local businesses here in the Tri-Cities. Just last week on October 22, 2015 the City of Port Moody recognized some of its best and brightest businesses at a City Hall gala in honour of the Spike Business Awards. With over 600 nominations, this year’s Economic Development Committee had some tough decisions to make. Fortunately, they didn’t shirk their responsibilities.

Councillor Diana Dilworth, the committee’s chair, shared, “I can’t believe it’s the 10th Anniversary of the Spike Business Awards. I remember the very first Spike Awards and I’m so proud to be part of an event that recognizes our amazing businesses. It’s important to celebrate their achievements and acknowledge their hard work, creativity and dedication. Congratulations to our nominees and the winners who were recognized tonight.”

Not to be outdone, Mayor Mike Clay said, “Port Moody’s business community plays an important role in making our city a place where we can all be proud to live, work and play. What I hear time and time again is that Port Moody businesses are successful because they know their customers, they get involved in local causes, and they give back to the community. This is something worth celebrating.”
