Grants Available for Creation of E-Commerce Websites

Led by the Community Recovery Task Force, the Town has launched an initiative to make $5000 available in grants to create e-commerce websites to support local businesses.

The $5000 fund is split into ten (10) $500 grants that will be made available to qualifying businesses on a first-come, first-served basis. The Town has secured a service agreement with a web development firm to build websites for an all-in package of $1000 each, of which the Town will cover $500. Qualifying businesses will be able to select a website layout from two website designs.

Qualifying for the Grant

Businesses must meet the following criteria to be eligible for the grant:

  • Businesses must be established and operational for a period of at least one year
  • Businesses must be located in the Town of The Blue Mountains' municipal boundary
  • Businesses must operate a physical retail location and offer products that can be shipped, picked up, or delivered
  • Businesses must maintain the operation of the e-commerce website for the remainder of the calendar year
  • Businesses that already have an established e-commerce website are not eligible

To Apply

Please email the Manager of Communications and Economic Development to confirm eligibility. Eligible businesses will then be put in touch with the website developer.
