In a technological age that demands efficiency, creativity, accessibility and a strong customer-centred approach, the City of Mississauga is re-launching, for the second year, the Digital Service Squad (DSS) Program offering digital help for local Mississauga business. Working with main street businesses and other businesses impacted by COVID-19.

The City’s DSS helps businesses become more tech-savvy in promoting and growing their business. The DSS consists of digital technology specialists who work with local Business Improvement Area Associations (BIAs) to support main street storefront small business owners to enhance their digital presence. This includes helping them adopt digital tools and technologies to attract new clients, improve the way their goods and services are being marketed and sold, and compete globally.

Local Mississauga businesses get digital help they deserve

The Digital Service Squad was made possible through a $67,500 grant awarded to the City by FedDev Ontario and the Province of Ontario, in partnership with the Toronto Association of Business Improvement Areas (TABIA) and the Ontario Business Improvement Area Association (OBIAA).
