Welcome to Shooga, your trusted partner in digital transformation. In today’s dynamic business landscape, technology and innovation are fundamental to achieving success and growth. That’s why we’re here to assist you in navigating the Canada Digital Adoption Program (CDAP), a powerful initiative by the Government of Canada to help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) adopt digital technologies and increase their competitiveness.
As an authorized CDAP digital advisor, we provide comprehensive support throughout your digital transformation journey, from prequalification to plan implementation. We are empowered to disburse the up to $15,000 grant from the CDAP, a critical financial boost that can set your business on the path to digital mastery.
Understanding the CDAP
The CDAP is designed to propel Canadian businesses into the digital future. It offers eligible businesses a two-tier financial aid: a grant of up to $15,000 to build a robust digital adoption plan and an optional 0% interest loan of up to $100,000, facilitated by the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC), to bring that plan to life.
Our role at Shooga is to guide you through the process, helping you build a tailored digital adoption plan, and supporting you in maximizing the benefits of the $15,000 grant.

Transform Your Business with a $100,000 Interest-Free Loan
The Canada Digital Adoption Program (CDAP) is more than just a catalyst for crafting an innovative digital plan. It’s a gateway to substantial funding that can bring your digital transformation to life.
A Financial Boost to Digital Adoption
Once your digital adoption plan is set in motion with the $15,000 grant, the next step is to implement it. That’s where the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) comes in, providing eligible businesses with an interest-free loan of up to $100,000. This remarkable financial support is designed to help you turn your plan into action without the pressure of interest accumulation.
While Shooga is an authorized CDAP digital advisor and can assist with disbursing the $15,000 grant, any loan request made under the CDAP will be handled by BDC and requires meeting CDAP eligibility criteria and BDC credit worthiness requirements.
