Stingray Radio Launches the Stingray Stimulus Plan, a $15 Million Radio Economic Recovery Program for Local Business


Stingray (TSX: RAY.A; RAY.B), a leading music, media, and technology company, will do its part to kick-start Canada’s economic recovery and is proud to announce the establishment of an economic stimulus plan via its 104 radio stations across the country to help local businesses obtain grants in the form of radio advertising during this unprecedented crisis.


Through this program, Stingray will provide a minimum of $15 million in radio advertising grants to local businesses in markets across Canada where Stingray operates local radio stations. Stimulant grants will range from a minimum of $1000 up to a maximum of $100,000 in radio advertising per business. 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.


“Radio advertising has long been a successful stimulus for local economic activity in our country,” said Ian Lurie, President, Stingray Radio. “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 business.”


As of today, local businesses in Stingray radio markets can apply for the grant at Grants will be determined and approved by the local Stingray radio management team based on their determination and weighting of relevant objective factors, including: immediate economic need, COVID-19 impact, social need, community benefit, and long term (macro-economic) benefit.


For the purposes of 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. Visit for more information or call your local sales representative today.

Supply Chain Insights to Help You Navigate the Unknown

As the world started to react to COVID-19, the deep integration and fragility of our global supply chains quickly became clear. Production in some areas came to a sudden stop, critical inputs became hard to acquire and follow-on production, and supply was affected down the line. Additionally, business owners around the world became aware of many other factors, including the cost of flexibility when demand changes rapidly.


We invite you to join us for an insightful webinar with Ed Straw, MBA, CD
Head, Advisory Solutions & Advice with ATB, and Tom McCaffery President and CEO of Supply Chain Canada, to discuss key considerations around how to analyze and manage the risks in your current supply chain. We will also help identify opportunities to make supply chain management a fundamental building block to your future success.
