All of the Chambers of Commerce within Mountain View County (Didsbury, Carstairs, Cremona/Water Valley, Sundre, and Olds) have come together to form the Mountain View Regional DSS.
This collaboration allowed us to qualify for program funding that is delivered through a partnership between Business Link and Digital Main Street, and is funded in part by the Government of Alberta, Ministry of Jobs, Economy and Innovation.
The grant will allow the Mountain View Regional DSS (Digital Support Squad) to work with over 90 local businesses during 2022 as they integrate or upgrade their online operations and presence. Working with Olds College and other Technical schools, students will be hired to create the DSS. The DSS members will come with the latest information and programming available.
To be eligible for the Digital Economy Program, businesses must fit the following criteria:
• registered in Alberta;
• zero to 49 employees (this includes self-employed business
owners with no employees); and,
• home-based or commercial business
NOTE: Non-profits, charitable trusts, and franchises are not considered eligible businesses under this program.
