Ontario Helping Small Businesses Establish Online Presence

Published on July 20, 2021

Ontario small businesses are the heart of our neighbourhoods and the economic foundation of our communities.

 

That’s why the government is investing $10 million towards the Digital Main Street Program for 2021-22 to help over 13,000 small businesses expand their digital presence and market their services online.

 

The renewed program will provide small businesses with grants, technical training, and digital resources to help them reach more customers in person and online, positioning them for a stronger recovery.

 

Small businesses with a brick and mortar location and 1- 50 employees across Ontario can apply for $2,500 Digital Transformation Grants, which they can use to purchase new technology and digital services.

 

To date, the program has provided over 20,000 businesses with support for their digital expansions, while generating jobs for more than 1,600 students and recent graduates.

 

Our government is committed to being there for them as they reopen – this additional support will give these businesses the digital boost they need to raise their profile and rebuild better than ever.
