Hello Members,

The BDIC (Prosper NWT) has introduced the Accelerate Digital Adoption Projects for Tomorrow (ADAPT) Fund to provide funding to help NWT businesses with their digital adoption projects. 

A maximum of $2,600 is available to eligible NWT businesses each year, until the ADAPT Fund budget has been exhausted. Funding will be distributed on a first come, first served basis. This funding can supplement the funding provided by the Canada Digital Adoption Program (CDAP) and supplementary or top-up funding is also available.

With CDAP, ADAPT and the supplementary or top-up funding, eligible businesses could receive a total of up to $12,700 in Yellowknife/Ndilǫ, Fort Smith, Hay River and Inuvik, and up to $15,100 in all other NT communities.

Funding may be provided for the following eligible expenses:

  • Developing a new e-commerce website and/or adding functionality to an existing site
  • Installing an e-commerce platform including subscription fees and costs
  • Digital marketing for an e-commerce store
  • Tracking and managing inventory and sales systems
  • Up to 50% or $2,600 (whichever is less) of related hardware/software costs
  • Professional fees or other costs to assist applicants with items listed above
