In the 2021 Budget, the Government of Canada introduced the Canada Digital Adoption Program (CDAP), a $4 billion initiative dedicated to assisting small to medium-sized businesses in establishing an online presence, enhancing their e-commerce operations, and digitizing their business processes. CDAP provides financial support and resources for businesses while creating training and employment opportunities for young Canadians.
CDAP offers access to interest-free loans of up to $100,000 from BDC, specially tailored for strategic investments. It also provides a substantial wage subsidy of $7,300 from BDC, facilitating versatile hiring strategies. Moreover, the program delivers customized digital services to enhance your business’s digital transformation journey.
If you are uncertain about your eligibility, please complete the CDAP Grant assessment tool to determine if you qualify for the Boost Your Business Technology Grant.
Synic offers step-by-step guidance on the direct application process through the government’s website (typically taking around 40 minutes). The government may require 4-5 business days to pre-qualify your business.
After your business successfully qualifies with the government pre-approval, choose Synic Software as your CDAP advisor to develop and implement a personalized digital adoption plan.
The government commits to a 30-day approval timeline, which you will receive an approval email from them. This email will include a link for you to apply for the interest-free loan, ranging from $50,000 to $100,000, offered by BDC, as well as the $7,300 wage subsidy for youth hiring.
Following approval, the government will deposit 90% of our consultancy fees, up to a maximum of $15,000, into your account. Typically, this deposit occurs within 2-3 business days upon receiving the approval email.
Your business is now ready to proceed with separate applications for the BDC interest-free loan and the wage subsidy!
