What is Covered Under CDAP?

Through the Canada Digital Adoption Program, eligible businesses receive funding up to $15,000 for the consultation of a Digital Advisor and the creation of a digital plan. The digital plan is tailored to your business needs, but requirements for planning fall into three phases: Current State Analysis, Digital Adaptation Analysis and Recommendations & Roadmap. Within these phases, we will recommend various services tailored to your business needs.

Recommendations and Roadmap

From here, we put together a plan for change and map out the required steps to transform your business with timelines and recommendations tied to strategy.

Deliverable: A strategic Digital Adoption Plan to submit to the Government of Canada to receive up to $15,000 in grant funding.

Key Components:

  • Customer Understanding: Get a clear picture of your target audience.
  • Current State Analysis: Summarizes current processes and digital platforms you have in place, what is working, not working, and what is missing.
  • Digital Adoption Analysis and Recommendations: Identifies digital tools, assets or processes that help your organization grow.
  • Timeline: An Implementation Roadmap that maps the priority of recommendations.
  • Budget: Includes internal and external resources.

Working with Roadmap on our Digital Adoption Plan transformed the way we looked at our business and future possibilities. The planning was organized, the project was on time, and we gained tremendous insights into our business as a team. I strongly recommend Roadmap to other leaders for the creation of your Digital Adoption Plan. It has been both eye-opening and rewarding to go on this journey for our business.
