What is the Grow your business online grant?

After the Covid pandemic, it became painfully clear that small businesses in Canada needed more support improving their competitiveness through the use of digital marketing strategy and technology. Enter the Canadian Government. The Government of Canada acknowledged this need through the development of the Canadian Digital Adoption Program (CDAP). It’s a $4 BILLION dollar initiative that provides hands-on support with the implementation of essential technology upgrades and digital marketing strategies. There are multiple streams of the grant you may qualify for, but this how-to guide will focus specifically on the Grow Your Business Online (GYBO) Micro-Grant. As is common with most grants, it is given on a first-come first serve basis.
