Frequently Asked Questions

The Canada Digital Adoption Program: What Is It?

The Canadian government launched the $4 billion Canada Digital Adoption Programme (CDAP) in Budget 2021 to assist in getting your business online, enhancing your online presence, or digitally transforming your company's activities. Young Canadians may get training and employment possibilities via CDAP, in addition to financing and assistance for enterprises.

What type of Documents do I need to apply?

Make sure you have ready:
• Proof of Business Registration
• Confirmation provided by CRA of sales tax registration or confirmation provided by the CRA of recent sales tax filleting (within the last 12 months)
• Proof of an employee (payroll run)

Can I apply for multiple businesses?

Yes, you have the option to submit applications for multiple businesses under CDAP. Each business must have its own individual digital adoption plan.However, it's important to be aware that there is a maximum loan cap of $200,000 per borrowing group. This means that if you apply for loans for several businesses, the total loan amount you can obtain for all of them combined should not exceed $200,000.

What is a micro-grant for growing your business online?

Your data's safety is paramount. We implement robust security measures to safeguard your information in the cloud, ensuring compliance and peace of mind.

When do I receive the grant money?

Small and Medium Businesses will be reimbursed for 90%; of the cost of developing the plan (to a maximum of $15,000), once the plan is completed and the invoices are submitted. A payment schedule for the digital adoption plan will be stated by the CDAP Digital Advisor, and is an agreement between the business and the Digital Advisor.
