Digital Main Street program milestone

Haldimand County Economic Development and Tourism, in cooperation with Grand Erie Business Centre, has reached a milestone with the Digital Main Street program.

Haldimand County is pleased to announce more than $500,000 has been granted to local businesses through the Digital Main Street (DMS) Digital Transformation Grant (DTG) program. With an investment from Ontario’s Ministry of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade, and administered by the Ontario BIA Association (OBIAA), in partnership with the Toronto Association of BIAs (TABIA), the DTG program has empowered Haldimand County businesses to embrace digital tools and technologies. This milestone achievement highlights the collective effort to support local businesses in enhancing their online presence and adapting to the demands of the digital economy.

“We applaud all Haldimand County businesses receiving the Digital Transformation Grant for their dedication towards innovation,” added Lidy  Romanuk, Manager, Economic Development and Tourism. “Their commitment to embracing digital technologies demonstrates their resilience and vision for the future. We encourage other businesses in the County to explore the benefits of digital transformation and the support offered through the DMS Digital Service Squad.”

The Digital Transformation Grant provides financial support to eligible businesses, enabling them to invest in initiatives such as website development, e-commerce integration, digital marketing campaigns, and much more. By alleviating the financial burden associated with digital transformation, the grant has empowered local businesses to stay competitive and reach a broader customer base.

“The Digital Main Street Digital Transformation Grant program is a vitally important and immensely valuable resource for small businesses,” says Kay Matthews, Executive Director, OBIAA. “We join Haldimand County in celebrating the success of the program that continues to provide their local businesses with the knowledge, resources, and training to revitalize their operations with an expanded digital presence.”
