The Digital Services Program

Modernise your operation like a pro. The Digital Services Program connects you with a highly vetted and experienced service provider in one of three areas — either Business Technology Assessment, Digital Legal Services, or Cybersecurity Audit. This service provider will provide tailored insight to help you get more from your technology investment and meet the digital needs of the modern marketplace. The cost of these services is fully covered by DMI for organisations that apply and are accepted into the program.
In order to be eligible for the Digital Services Program, businesses must meet the following criteria. If you have previously received a Business Technology Assessment, Cybersecurity Audit or Digital Legal Services through the Digital Services Program, you are not eligible:  

Your business is owned and operated in the Province of Manitoba.


Your business is registered and in good standing with the Manitoba Companies Office and has been operating since April 1, 2021 or earlier.


You can demonstrate that your business has invested a minimum of $3,500 in building digital capacity since April 1, 2022.


You have a minimum of 5 full-time equivalent employees for the Business Technology Assessment or the Cybersecurity Audit OR a minimum of 2 full-time equivalent employees for Digital Legal Services.


The individual named in the application is authorised to enter into legal agreements on behalf of the company.

Digital Service Providers

This program’s service providers are trusted members of the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce who must complete a robust application process and be onboarded by the Digital Manitoba Initiative team. If your business has expertise in one of our service stream areas, your business can apply to become an authorized DMI Digital Service Provider. Service providers are neutral, third-party companies that give technology-agnostic guidance. With this in mind, technology vendors cannot become service providers for this program.
