The Saskatchewan government is helping businesses just like yours adjust to these changing times. They’re doing this by providing funding to cover up to 50% of business expenses needed to adapt to stay sustainable.
Back in late December, the SK government announced the Strong Recovery Adaptation Rebate (SRAR). This is a program that is aimed to help businesses adapt their business models to become more sustainable. Here are the details on the financial assistance provided:
So, what are the eligible business adaptation investments that are covered? Well, since we’re writing this article they include stuff like:
- Website development
- Ecommerce development which includes enhancements to support curbside pickup or delivery, and/or help with contactless payment
- Initial costs for new software (web or mobile app development)
What this means for you
This means that if you’re a Saskatchewan business, the government will pay for half of your website improvements. Since the beginning of COVID and the lockdowns, we have been helping many local business start selling their products online so they can offer curbside pickup or shipping options to their customers. If you’ve been thinking about this for your business, now is the time to act.
As stated above, the deadline to purchase these improvements is February 28, 2021.
If you have questions, you can check out the office grant page or the PDF they created with common question and answers.
