The Canada Digital Adoption Program (CDAP) is a government incentive that helps businesses accelerate and facilitate their adoption of digital solutions.
Through CDAP, businesses can obtain up to $15,000 to develop a customized digital adoption plan with BDO and cover the expenses of mapping out their digital transformation path.
The CDAP grant covers up to 90% of the eligible cost of retaining the services of a Qualified Service Provider (QSP), up to a maximum grant value of $15,000 per business, to develop a digital adoption plan.
Companies with a completed digital adoption plan may also qualify for a $100,000, zero-interest loan from the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) to pay for technology solutions identified in their digital plan. These can include acquiring and installing new IT equipment, training staff on onboarded technologies, and any materials or support services related to onboarding the new technologies.
