Bricks & clicks: Digital Main Street shows how retail stores & digital can grow together

Bricks & clicks: Digital Main Street shows how retail stores & digital can grow together

By Gord McIntosh
Digital Communications Consultant
Digital Main Street provides main street small businesses with digital-readiness assessments, recommendations for quick wins, information and resources and $2,500 grants to qualifying businesses to bring on digital tools and techniques.

Dennis Van Staalduinen thinks that adding digital to traditional bricks and mortar is a new beginning.

In fact, the Executive Director of the huge and trendy Wellington West Business Improvement Area (BIA) just west of downtown Ottawa sees nothing but growth ahead.

That’s because bricks and clicks can go together to grow a customer base, with a little help from an innovative partnership program between the Ontario BIA Association (OBIAA) and the Province of Ontario.

Volunteers use technology to help form a clearer picture of conservation

Technology and nature aren’t as separate as they seem. Here at the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC), we’ve been integrating the use of technology increasingly into our field work and Conservation Volunteers (CV) events.

“This type of information is crucial to identifying areas in Canada that need protection, monitoring our existing lands and assessing what conservation actions are needed.” - Dan Kraus, NCC's national conservation biologist

In all 10 of our provinces, NCC is working to protect important natural areas and the species they sustain.
