Frequently Asked Questions

about the Digital Adoption Grant

I have a service-based business, can I still apply for the program?

Absolutely, service-based businesses websites can incorporate e-commerce features such as online booking systems and online payments. We specialize in helping service businesses with their CDAP application!

What is the deadline for grant applications?

The grant application is open until March 2025. Please stay tuned for updates.

Will the grant be provided in advance, or will it be given as a reimbursement?

You'll get the grant after you've spent it on approved expenses. Recipients must submit an expense report aligned with their pre-approved spending plan, along with copies of receipts and proof of payment documents.

Am I allowed to submit multiple expenses to reach the full grant limit?

Sure, you can submit multiple expenses and their receipts. The grant will reimburse up to the grant’s maximum limit. 

Are the grant funds transferable to other businesses?

No, grant funds cannot be transferred. If your business gets approved for the grant, you have to use it for the same business that applied for it, not for a different one or one that doesn't meet the requirements.

Can I apply for multiple businesses?

Yes, as long as each of your businesses has its own unique business number. However, please remember that each business must meet the eligibility requirements on its own.

Can someone else submit a grant application on behalf of my business?

No. Only business owners can submit applications for their businesses.

Does the government check or audit funding?

Yes, ISED audits may occur periodically and grant recipients must comply with any audit requests.
