Tourism Digital Assistance Program

We’ve partnered with Tourism Nova Scotia to help connect tourism businesses with digital service providers that can help them develop or enhance effective digital marketing tools. It’s an exciting project that gives our tourism businesses the opportunity to collaborate with the digital community in our province.

Program Guidelines from Tourism Nova Scotia:

For eligibility criteria and program details, please see the program guidelines from Tourism Nova Scotia:

How the Program Works

Tourism Businesses

Tourism businesses submit a digital assistance request. Tourism Nova Scotia reviews the submissions and forwards approved requests to Digital Nova Scotia. View Application.

Digital Service Providers

Digital service providers submit an Expression of Interest to Digital Nova Scotia that describes the types of services they can provide. Digital Nova Scotia reviews these applications and maintains a list of prequalified service providers and services available. View Application.

The Match

Next we match each tourism business with digital service providers that meet the specific needs of the business. Applications from tourism businesses will be reviewed by a panel from Tourism Nova Scotia and Digital Nova Scotia. Although an applicant may be eligible, eligibility does not guarantee acceptance into the program. Priority will be given to small and medium-sized businesses whose primary focus is to attract and provide services for visitors.

 Funding Amounts

Approved tourism businesses will be eligible for 100% of the cost of services from a qualified digital service provider, up to a maximum value of $5,000.
