About the Program
We're excited to be partnering with Tourism Nova Scotia and Digital Nova Scotia to offer an immersive website development program for eligible tourism businesses. Participants will come away from the program with a mobile-friendly website and the knowledge to maintain and develop effective content for their site.
Selected participants will work with our team during a two-day workshop to create a new website on the Wix platform. Additional support will be offered through one-on-one virtual meetings after the workshops are completed.
Eligible tourism businesses are invited to complete an online application to help demonstrate your website needs and outline how your current website inhibits your ability to connect with customers.
Businesses must demonstrate a need for a new website and their ability to complete the website program by March 31, 2021. Applications will be reviewed by a panel from Tourism Nova Scotia and Digital Nova Scotia. Although an applicant may be eligible, eligibility does not guarantee acceptance to the program as it is a competitive process.
