Use the CDAP Grant to Fund Your Digital Projects

What is the CDAP Grant?

The Canada Digital Adoption Program (CDAP) is a government initiative to help small-to-medium sized enterprises (SMEs) adopt new digital technologies. The Canadian government has committed $4 billion to the program over the next four years.

If you're a registered business in Canada (sole proprietorship or encorporated) with at least $30,000 revenue, you're eligible for one grant (eligibility requirements opened October 18, 2022).

If your business has one full-time equivalent employee and $500,000 revenue in one of the prior three years, you're likely eligible for both grants.

Stream 2: Boost Your Business Technology
Up to $15,000 to hire a CDAP Digital Advisor to create a CDAP plan. 90% reimbursement up to $15,000 to cover the costs of hiring an approved advisor to develop a digital plan.

Interest-Free Loan
Up to $100,000 to implement the CDAP plan.

How do I apply?

Applications are submitted through the Government of Canada website. The process can be daunting or confusing, so if you need guidance, finding an Authorized Digital Advisor who will walk you through the official Canada Digital Adoption Program application process will be very helpful.

Please note: only government-approved digital advisors can provide services for Stream 2.
