Our next Lunch and Learn is scheduled for Thursday, March 21st from 12:00 – 1:00 PM. We will be joined by members of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce CDAP team to explain the highlights of the Canada Digital Adoption Program Grant (CDAP) to grow your business.  As part of CDAP, the Government of Canada has partnered with the Ontario Chamber of Commerce to deliver the Grow Your Business Online grant. Through this program, small business owners can receive a micro-grant worth up to $2,400 to help get their business online, give their e-commerce presence a boost, or digitalize business operations.
