Act Fast:

Government e-commerce grant available.

Small and medium-sized businesses have access to a government grant aimed at launching online storefronts.

The StrongerBC Launch Online Grant Program opened for application on February 3rd.  Businesses can apply for up-to $7,500 to create and enhance their e-commerce operations, working in partnership with a B.C.-based business, such as Glacier Media Digital. 


The initiative is supported by $12 million in provincial funding focused on local business and driving economic growth across British Columbia.

What is it?

The maximum government contribution is $7,500 (up to 75%) to build an online storefront, improve existing e-commerce platforms and acquire customers through digital advertising. One application per business may be submitted.


The Launch Online program stipulates that recipients work with a local service provider to implement their digital marketing strategy. Glacier Media Digital works with local businesses across Western Canada to build digital marketing presence. We’re well-versed in all areas of digital marketing and have a history of proven results.


One of our key differentiators is transparency and this is important to know as another condition of the grant is that recipients need to file a detailed report outlining the impact of their results at the six-month mark.

We can help

Hurry! These funds are available until the grant money is claimed. Claims are processed in the order they’re received.
