That’s great! We’ve got two convenient options for you to choose from that will help you get on the Digital Main Street platform.

Hi, I’m Dionne. It’s nice to “meet” you!

As the Squad Service member for the Stirling-Rawdon BIA, I’ve been contracted to help the Stirling-Rawdon BIA get all of its main street business owners (just like you) onto the Digital Main Street platform!

So, how do you get started?

There are three simple steps to follow if you’d like me to help you out:

1. Review the checklist to ensure you’re eligible for the Digital Main Street grant.

2. Choose whether you’d like me to come help you with your application process in-person or whether you’d like me to start it for you over the phone.

3. Book an appointment with me or come to one of the scheduled onboarding events I’m hosting every Tuesday & Thursday in Stirling. (See where and when below)

Are you eligible for the grant?

If you meet the following criteria, you are eligible to apply for the Digital Main Street grant. If you don’t meet the criteria, it’s still worth it to go through the Digital Main Street training (there are similar trainings online that sell for $400 and more).

To be eligible for the Digital Main Street grant, your business must be a main street business that:

  • Is within a BIA or is located within a defined central DOWNTOWN business district or downtown by a municipality‚Äôs Official Plan/Zoning By-Laws. (NOTE: a main thoroughfare does not necessarily constitute a ‘main street/downtown’ district.)
  • Is employing 1-99 employees.
  • Is paying commercial property tax (commercially assessed), either directly or through commercial rent.
  • Is a registered business in Ontario and/or is incorporated.
  • Is NOT a business supplying digital services to other businesses (e.g., website design/ development, SEO, programming)
  • Is NOT a franchise.
  • Is NOT a not-for-profit/charitable organization.

Is owned by:

  • An Ontario resident or operating a business in Ontario.
  • An individual of 18 years of age or older at the time of application.
  • A Canadian citizen or permanent resident.

Has completed the Digital Transformation for Main Street program:
