Tooly is now part of the PCAN digital advisor pool and can help you develop a digital adoption plan through which you can obtain a grant. We are certified for the Enhance Your Business Technology funding option, which is designed for small and medium-sized businesses that want to improve their competitiveness in the digital marketplace.
You'll first have to complete a questionnaire that takes about 15 minutes to assess your company's digital maturity, and then you'll know immediately whether or not you've been accepted into the Program. If you are, you'll be able to choose your digital advisor, with whom you'll develop a digital plan that will be forwarded to the government. The grant will then be paid to you within 30 days of approval of your digital plan.
Yes, provided you meet the above eligibility criteria. Your companies must also all be individually registered, i.e. have a unique company number. However, you must submit a separate application for each company. If you wish to apply for several companies, the plan must be different for each one.
Not for the second component. To apply to the CANP, you must have achieved at least $500,000 in sales in at least one of the last three fiscal years. However, if you have $30,000 in revenues OR at least one employee, you may apply to the first component of the CNAP for a grant of $2,400.
If you have any questions about eligibility criteria or how to apply, you can consult the government website. If you need help after submitting your application, you can contact your digital advisor. Click here for a one-page document explaining how to register.
