Digital Main Street

Digital Main Street

Helping Small Businesses Grow by Adopting Digital Tools & Technologies


Digital Main Street has been a tremendous help to small businesses throughout Ontario’s communities, with over 41,000 small business owners accessing the program since the summer of 2018.  Now it’s time to come together to help tell the Digital Main Street success story to help ensure that even more small businesses embrace the opportunities that a strong digital presence can provide to them and the main streets that define our communities.

We urge you to tell the Digital Main Street success story to your BIA members, municipal councillors and MPPs.  It’s vital that we work together to support and celebrate ongoing investment in helping even more main street small businesses be ready for the future

We will be updating this page with new or updated content as necessary. Remember to scroll down to see what’s new! Don’t worry, we’ll also push out notifications to let you know what’s been added. Thank you in advance for helping us to spread the word across Ontario.
