The Town of South Bruce Peninsula is enhancing its online presence.
A new project in conjunction by the Ontario BIA Association and the Ministry of Agriculture will see $12 million over three years put towards enhancing the online presence of small businesses.
Called the Digital Main Street Project, the aim is to help small businesses amplify their brand through online sources like e-commerce and strong social media presences.
Danielle Edwards, the Economic Development Officer for South Bruce Peninsula, feels this initiative will catch the eyes of more customers.
"Hopefully this will allow our businesses to catch consumers that they may not be getting now," Edwards says.
The project is currently hiring for a Digital Service Squad Team Member.
