What is digital literacy?

Digital literacy is the foundation for making good use of digital technology. Digital literacy can be thought of as a mix of skills and knowledge necessary for using the Internet, computers, and other digital devices safely and effectively.

Hello Faridat,

Thank you for contacting Canada Business. We are a government organization that helps entrepreneurs start or grow their business in Canada.

You can use the program search tool to see if there are funding programs that meet your criteria. You may want to refine your search by choosing the type of program “Grants, contributions and financial assistance” in Ontario. You can also use this tool to find non-financing programs.

You can explore our Grants and financing page to learn more about other types of financing options such as crowdfunding and financing from private and non-government organizations.

For support opportunities, you can use the Networking search tool to find networking, mentoring, coaching and advising resources.

Furthermore, you can find some resources to help you with the digital components of your business, such as technology in daily operations, developing your website and social media.
