Canadian Remote or Isolated Educational Experience (CRIEE)

DLRI has limited funding available on a first-come-first-served basis to support learners on remote or isolated rotations. Contact our office to ensure that funding is available. 

What is a CRIEE location?

CRIEE locations are defined as:

Remote: A geographical area where a community is located over 300 km from the nearest service center having year-round road or water access.

Isolated: A geographical area that has scheduled flights and good telephone services; however, it is without year-round road access. It is noted that not all homes in a community will have phones, and that flights may be cancelled or delayed due to weather.
