What is The CDAP?

The Canada Digital Adoption Program (CDAP) is a Canadian Government grant that helps small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) adopt digital technologies to increase their competitiveness. The CDAP provides funding for up to 90% of the cost of the project, with a maximum set at $15,000.
