Digital Technology Adoption Pilot Program (DTAPP)
As part of the Government of Canada’s Digital Economy Strategy, NRC-IRAP is delivering the Digital Technology Adoption Pilot Program (DTAPP). DTAPP represents a significant investment into the Canadian economy in an effort to increase the productivity growth of small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Canada across all sectors through the adoption of digital technologies.
DTAPP is designed to speed up the rate at which SMEs in Canada adopt digital technology and build digital skills. Through new and existing networks and relationships with colleges and organizations across Canada, the DTAPP team provides SMEs access to expertise in the digital technology adoption field. The DTAPP team also works with other government organizations to leverage the synergies of all available Digital Economy Strategy resources.
An important component of this Pilot Program is to assess and measure the outcomes of digital technology adoption on the productivity of SMEs. DTAPP will utilize this aggregate knowledge and transfer successful practices and lessons learned to the broader SME community in order to:
- improve the rate of digital technology adoption by SMEs
- improve understanding of the link between digital technologies and productivity
- raise awareness of the benefits and importance of adopting these technologies
This information will be a critical tool to encourage prospective adopters of digital technologies and will continue to impact the potential productivity growth of the Canadian economy well into the future.
If your firm is incorporated, has 500 employees or less and is currently seeking opportunities to adopt digital technology with a goal of increasing your firm’s productivity, you could be eligible to receive assistance from NRC-IRAP through our DTAPP team. If you are a college or not-for-profit organization interested in delivering services to SMEs to help them in adopting digital technologies DTAPP could assist you.
