Stingray Stimulus Plan | Supporting local Canadian businesses

By: StingrayFri, 05/08/2020

We are proud to announce the establishment of an economic stimulus plan with our 104 radio stations in markets across Canada. The $15 million Stingray Radio Local Stimulus Plan has been designed to help local Canadian businesses obtain economic stimulus grants in the form of radio advertising. Grants will range from a minimum of $1000 up to a maximum of $100,000 in radio advertising per business and will be determined and approved by the local Stingray radio management. We are happy to do our part in working together to overcome these difficult times.

We’ve met with Ian Lurie, President, Stingray Radio to learn more about the program.

How did we come up with this program?

Radio advertising has long been a successful stimulus for local economic activity in our country. We are delighted to support local businesses lacking the capital resources to invest in advertising to effectively relaunch their business. The Stingray Stimulus Program is our way of helping to kick-start Canada’s economic engine for local businesses.

Where is the Stingray Stimulus Plan available?

We proudly serve the country’s largest cities and smallest towns, with 104 radio stations from coast-to-coast, from Vancouver to St. John’s. The Stingray Stimulus program is available to businesses that operate within 100 km of a municipality in which a Stingray Radio station is located.

Are all businesses eligible?

We will support access to radio advertising grants for local Canadian businesses in all sectors. For the Stingray Stimulus Plan, local Canadian business is defined as any registered Canadian business, not for profit organization or charity that operates within 100 km of the designated municipality in which the applicable Stingray radio operation is located.

Are there any obligations?

The recipient business will have twelve months to utilize the radio advertising grant provided towards booking and airing a radio advertising campaign and will not be required to invest additional sums with Stingray radio stations to receive the grant.

Local businesses in Stingray radio markets can apply for the grant at
