Shopify and the Government of Canada have launched ‘Go Digital Canada’ initiative to shift small businesses online.

Go Digital Canada is a central resource hub that enables Canadian entrepreneurs to launch their business online for free with an extended 90-day trial.

Besides, they can access a suite of resources and tools to build their store including step-by-step guidance with Shopify Compass, live webinars, and 24/7 support.

Business owners can adapt their stores to suit their individual needs by setting up online payments, gift cards, local pickup/delivery options, and launching free email marketing campaigns.

As Canadians, we are resilient – finding solutions where others just see a challenge. Our government is working hard to harness this entrepreneurial spirit and help Canadians turn their innovative ideas into successful businesses – and help them rebuild in the months to come. Shopify is an incredible made-in-Canada success story, and their work to help Canadian entrepreneurs go digital, as we increasingly shift online in response to COVID-19, will help create even more Canadian success stories. Now is Canada’s time
Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade
