Consultus Digital is here to help. Our team of CDAP advisors have one mission: to help you get your CDAP funding and get the most out of it. Get in touch with us today to start your digital adoption plan and learn more about our expert support.

Boost Your Business Technology is available to businesses that meet these requirements defined by the Government of Canada:
  • A provincial or federal corporation, or a Canadian resident-owned sole proprietorship
  • Be privately-owned and for-profit
  • Have a maximum of 499 employees
  • Earned a gross revenue of $500,000 to $100 million in 1 of the 3 previous years

The $15,000 Canada Digital Adoption Program funding can be claimed as eligible expenses. The Government of Canada will reimburse businesses for up to 90% of eligible digital adoption costs, for up to $15,000. Once your Consultus CDAP advisor has delivered your digital adoption plan, you can submit the relevant invoices to claim the grant amount.

The $15,000 Boost Your Business Technology grant is not available if you have a digital adoption plan developed through any of the following initiatives in the past year:
  • Programme Audit Industrie 4.0
  • Digital Boost 2.0
  • Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency: Digital Acceleration Pilot
But, keep in mind that the $15,000 grant isn’t the only available funding through the CDAP. If you meet all other eligibility criteria, you may still apply for a $100,000 interest-free loan through the BDC.

The Canada Digital Adoption Program has a list of registered digital advisors. Head over to the Digital Advisor Marketplace to find approved CDAP advisors, including Consultus Digital.

Consultus Digital has a roster of digital adoption and enablement experts. As your dedicated CDAP advisors, they bring valuable industry expertise and experience with driving client success to your digital adoption plan.
You will be assigned a dedicated account manager as a primary point of contact who will provide regular reports on milestones achieved and ensure that you are on solid footing to implement your tailored digital adoption plan.

You will need to apply for the Boost Your Business Technology grant directly. As part of the Consultus Digital process, we can provide CDAP eligibility assessment and grant application support to boost your chances of approval.

Yes! As a registered CDAP advisor, we know exactly how difficult it may be to complete application components like this. Wecan provide more information on the assessment, answer any questions, and improve your understanding of digital maturity, so you can answer accurately.

Once you select Consultus as your CDAP advisor, we can begin helping you with your application and conducting your needs assessment, so we can develop your digital adoption plan. The kick-off typically happens within a few weeks of signing your engagement contract. Our goal is to wrap up within 2 months of funding approval; in that timeframe, you will need to submit your digital adoption plan and relevant invoices to the federal government.

Your digital adoption plan is a comprehensive roadmap to identifying current challenges and opportunities for digital transformation. This roadmap is tailored to your needs, complete with expert recommendations, a cost-benefit analysis of industry-standard tools and platforms, and a pathway to implementation through a longer partnership with Consultus Digital.

No. The Boost Your Business Technology grant specifically provides funding for laying down the groundwork—assessing your business’ digital maturity and developing your digital adoption plan in partnership with a CDAP advisor. Eligible costs include advisory fees, associated charges, and applicable sales taxes.
However, keep in mind that BDC offers a $100,000 interest-free loan, which you can use to implement your digital adoption plan—including purchasing new equipment.

The Boost Your Business Technology grant provides for retaining our services as a CDAP advisor. At the end of this engagement, you will be provided an implementation-ready digital adoption plan.
While that is the end of our role as your CDAP advisor, we’re more than happy to continue our work and apply our profound knowledge of your digital adoption needs to implement your tailored plan. You may choose to hire Consultus for consultancy, marketing, and sales services and achieve your digital adoption goals.

The funded work placement program provides a $7,300 wage subsidy for hiring a student or recent graduate as part of your digital transformation and adoption initiatives. The funded work placement subsidy falls under the Boost Your Business Technology CDAP track, so you would need to maintain the same eligibility criteria to access funding.
As a note, we recommend applying for this subsidy once you are ready to implement your digital adoption strategy, since the $15,000 funding already provides for expert advisory services.

No. Consultus is a registered CDAP advisor for the Boost Your Business Technology grant, and focused on supporting businesses through digital adoption strategies. The $2,400 funding from the Grow Your Business Online micro-grant has different eligibility requirements, and other e-commerce advisors may be available for support.

Each approved $15,000 Boost Your Business Technology grant is designed for one business. You may apply for an individual grant per business entity that meets the eligibility criteria.
