On June 11, Minister Joly announced FedDev Ontario’s investment of $42.5 million through the RRRF initiative to support the Digital Main Street platform. The platform helps Ontario businesses pivot operations to include digital business models, remaining competitive now and into the future.
Digital Main Street recently announced the official launch of a key aspect of its platform, the Future Proof program, which aims to create lasting change for businesses. Through this initiative, businesses will have the opportunity to work with teams of highly-trained students and recent graduates with expertise in web design, digital marketing and more to create transformation plans that will give them the tools to maintain their upgraded online presence.
The program also facilitates collaboration among businesses, communities and regional innovation centres to identify common challenges and work toward solutions. TechAlliance, our regional innovation centre based in London, will be hosting a series of online public information sessions concerning this initiative on October 5, 6, 7 and 8.
