What is CDAP?

The Canada Digital Adoption Program (CDAP), by the Government of Canada, helps small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) adopt digital technologies to increase their competitiveness. Applications take only 30 minutes and you are automatically approved on the spot instantly. Eligible businesses will receive a grant for up to $15,000 to pay an approved digital advisor to help build their adoption plan, followed by a six year 0% interest loan of up to $100,0001 and multiple $7,300 workplace subsidies to implement the plan. We then show you how to access billions more in funding from the other programs available as your digital advisor.
