Dufferin Media Has Experience With Grants

For the past 4 years, we have worked with businesses from Ontario and New Brunswick to assist them with the Digital Main St Grant. We are familiar with navigating the requirements of Grants for Canadian Businesses and providing assistance with the application (the plan for digital marketing), and providing the services as outlined in the grant guidelines.
