Canada Digital Adoption Program

The Canada Digital Adoption Program’s Grow Your Business Online grant provides small businesses with an opportunity to receive up to $2,400 in funding. This grant empowers you to develop your digital marketing presence and expand your online reach by leveraging digital tools and e-commerce capabilities.

The Canada Digital Adoption Program is a partnership between the Government of Canada, Business Link, and Digital Main Street.

How To Use Your Grant

The $2,400 micro-grant is a reimbursement-style grant, meaning funding will be issued after your spending plan is approved, grant agreement is received, and eligible receipts/proof of payments are submitted and approved.

Please note the approval of the spending plan is not an authorization to purchase any items, and no funds should be spent until the business receives an email from the Funding Manager authorizing purchases. Eligible costs:

  • Develop a new e-commerce website.
  • Implement new features for your current website.
  • Install an e-commerce platform.
  • Hire a digital marketing consultant.*
  • Track and manage your inventory and sales.
  • Purchase hardware and accompanying software.*

Eligible costs must be directly tied to the sale of goods and services online.
