Our team proudly includes a certified advisor for the Canadian Digital Adoption Program (CDAP), a federal initiative aimed at bolstering the competitiveness of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) through the adoption of digital technologies. Qualified businesses can benefit from a zero-interest loan of up to $100,000, a $15,000 grant for the creation of a digital adoption plan with a Digital Advisor, and additional resources to implement the plan.

We are equipped to expedite your online marketing strategies, optimize your sales processes, enhance customer engagement, unify your workforce, and provide superior data insights about your business. Our expert team has a proven track record of assisting companies like Freshbooks, Shopify, and MLSE in expanding their digital footprint.

The application process commences with an online Digital Needs Assessment (DNA) that evaluates the business and digital strengths and weaknesses of the SME across various aspects, including strategy, business model, products and services, customer experience, operations, technology, organization, and cybersecurity. This DNA enables SMEs to gauge their current level of digital maturity and progress to the subsequent stage of their application.

Don’t hesitate to contact us to discover how we can assist your SME in applying for the CDAP program and forging your path to digital transformation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is CDAP?

CDAP stands for Canadian Digital Adoption Plan and it is a government-funded program aimed at helping Canadian businesses adopt and integrate digital technologies into their operations.

How can I access the grant?

The Government of Canada will reimburse you for up to 90 percent of eligible expenses, up to $15,000. Once Our Team has completed work on your digital adoption plan, you will submit the relevant invoices to receive your grant payment.

Can I apply the grant funds towards implementation services?

No. The Boost Your Business Technology grant is intended to assess your digital maturity and opportunities to increase your competitiveness through digital transformation. Eligible costs are limited to those involved with creating your digital adoption plan.

What will I receive with my Digital Adoption Plan?

Your digital adoption plan is a comprehensive assessment of the opportunities to improve your business by leveraging modern hardware and platforms. Specific deliverables you will receive from Our Team include:

  • Current state analysis
  • Post-transformation capability report
  • Summary of proposed digital solutions, including a cost/benefit analysis of your top three options and high-level requirements
  • Near- and long-term digital strategy

Can Our Team implement or execute my adoption plan?

Absolutely! While you can have your plan implemented by any vendor you choose, by the time you have completed your plan with us, we will have an intimate awareness of the needs of your business. Having already formed a deep understanding of your transformation needs, engaging our creative team will make for a seamless transition from planning to execution.

Is there a deadline to apply?

When CDAP was launched in March 2022, it was scheduled to support SMEs for 4 years. However, all grants are first come, first served and can be changed or removed at any time. Reach out to get started and secure your $15,000 digital adoption grant asap. And access to a 0% loan for up to $100,000.

Is there a cost to apply for the grant?

We will assist with the grant application process at no cost. However, if you choose us as your digital advisor, there will be a fee charged to your business to develop your Digital Adoption Plan. This fee will be reimbursed by CDAP at 90% up to $15,000, meaning you will only pay 10% of the final cost (up to $1,666) out of pocket.

What businesses are eligible?

The Canada Digital Adoption Program – Grow Your Business Online is open to for-profit businesses (including for-profit social enterprises and cooperatives) that are registered or incorporated, consumer-facing, accessible by customers or provide in-person services, and have a minimum of one employee. The recipients must also commit to maintain the digital adoption strategy for 6 months post-intervention and consent to participate in follow-up surveys, have their information shared with the Government of Canada (ISED and Statistics Canada), and have their business name published as a recipient of funding. Corporate chains, franchises, registered charities, representatives of multi-level marketing companies, real estate brokerages, and non-profit organizations are not eligible.

What is the journey of going through the CDAP program?

The process starts with an online digital needs assessment (DNA) that assesses the business’s strengths and weaknesses in various areas such as strategy, business model, customer experience, technology, and cybersecurity. Eligible businesses that complete the DNA will be pre-approved for a grant covering up to 90% of the cost of their Digital Adoption Plan, up to $15,000. The eligible business will then have access to the digital advisor marketplace to find a suitable digital advisor to develop the plan. Once the plan is developed and accepted, the grant will be issued, and the business will be eligible for a zero-interest loan from BDC and a subsidized youth work placement to implement their plan.
