In 2021 the Federal government of Canada created the Canada Digital Adoption Program (CDAP) which was established to help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) realize their full potential by adopting digital technologies.
This $4 billion program is an investment of $1.4 billion in grants and advisory services to SMEs from the Government of Canada and around $2.6 billion in loans from the Business Development Bank of Canada. This initiative is designed to help businesses cover the costs of implementing new digital technologies.
