Province of Ontario Announces Province-Wide Digital Main Street Initiative

MEDIA ANNOUNCEMENT MADE BY MINISTER LEAL ON APRIL 9, 2018

COMMENTS BELOW BY KAY MATTHEWS, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR FOR THE ONTARIO BIA ASSOCIATION AT THE ANNOUNCEMENT:

OBIAA applauds the Main Street Strategy, which recognizes the importance of small business.

We are proud to stand beside the Government of Ontario and the Minister of Small Business, the Honourable Jeff Leal, in this announcement and look forward to administering Ontario’s Main Street Digital Initiative by expanding and complementing the existing Digital Main Street Program as created by the Toronto Association of BIAs and the City of Toronto.

OBIAA, through this project and more, is truly becoming a catalyst for positive social and economic change, enabling growth in Ontario’s BIAs, indeed small businesses across Ontario, and their respective communities.

Ontario’s Main Street Businesses know the importance of being online. The Ontario Business Improvement Area Association is pleased to work with the Ontario government to help ensure Main Street businesses succeed by improving their digital skills and their ability to tap into the latest trends of today’s digital economy!
