The digital age has brought countless opportunities to businesses worldwide, yet many small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Canada struggle to fully leverage these digital tools. Recognizing this gap, the Canada Digital Adoption Program (CDAP) was initiated to empower small businesses through digital transformation. Today, we’re thrilled to celebrate an exciting milestone: the completion of 500 digital assessments by our dedicated digital advisors at TGL Consulting.
Key Stakeholders and Contributors
This achievement wouldn’t have been possible without the active participation of two key stakeholders: our expert digital advisors and the small business owners committed to embracing digital change.
Our digital advisors at TGL Consulting have tirelessly worked to assess, guide, and empower small businesses through their digital transformation journey. They’ve provided practical strategies, bespoke solutions, and ongoing support to ensure these businesses not only survive but thrive in the digital landscape.
On the other side of this transformation are the small business owners who displayed exceptional courage and foresight by signing up for the CDAP. Their willingness to adapt and innovate has been the driving force behind the success of this program.
Key Benefits and Impact

Success Stories and Case Studies
Among the 500 assessments, here are two of the many success stories that stand out, showcasing the immense potential of digital transformation:
- Catering Service: A local catering service transformed their business model by fully implementing cloud adoption to standardize email and communication whilst also implementing digital solutions to enhance customer estimating and management. This move not only expanded their customer base but also led to a significant increase in sales.
- Heavy Duty Vehicle Business: A construction vehicle business adopted a digital customer relationship management and asset tracking system with mobile timesheets, which optimized their business operations, enabled more focused marketing campaigns, and improved invoice reconciliation.
Future Plans and Goals
While celebrating this milestone, we remain steadfast in our mission to empower more businesses through digital adoption. Our next goal is to reach the 1,000 assessment milestone. Additionally, we’re planning on-demand webinars and events to further engage with small businesses and continue our advocacy for digital transformation.
