Thank you for your interest in the Call for Applications for Service Providers for Stream 1: Grow Your Business Online. The call for applications is now closed.
The government has issued a Call for Applications from not-for-profit organizations that can support small businesses in the development and implementation of their e‑commerce strategies. This includes providing micro‑grants, e‑commerce advisory services and training and assigning youth digital advisors to help business owners design and implement their e‑commerce strategies. These organizations will then become part of a network of service providers for the initiative.
In their application, delivery partners will need to demonstrate their ability and track record in working with regional and local businesses on digital adoption. They also need to outline their capacity to recruit, train, support and assign youth digital advisors who can support small businesses as they begin to sell their products and services online.
Who is eligible to apply?
Stream 1: Grow Your Business Online will award funding to regional and national not-for-profit organizations that can support small businesses in developing and implementing new technologies, as well as hire, train, and place young people as youth digital advisors in small businesses.
How will the program be administered?
Following the Call for Applications, a network of service providers will be established. They will be responsible for reviewing applications from individual businesses and providing advisory services and micro‑grants.
