Thanks to renewed investment in the Ontario Digital Main Street (DMS) program, even more of the province’s main street small businesses will be able to take full advantage of digital technologies and e-commerce platforms to increase their revenues and create jobs. The Ontario Business Improvement Area Association (OBIAA), in partnership with the Toronto Association of BIAs (TABIA), today announced that additional funding from the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario) and the Ontario Ministry of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade (MEDJCT) will allow them to expand the successful DMS program to more businesses in the province.

Digital Main Street is an innovative program designed to help main street small businesses achieve digital transformation. The program is built around an online learning platform, structured training programs, grants and Digital Service Squads teams of street-level experts that help main street small businesses manage and grow their operations through technology adoption. The program was originally created by the Toronto Association of BIAs (TABIA) and a group of strategic partners including Google, MasterCard, Microsoft, and Shopify.
