Enhancing Access to Care for Indigenous People

ODA’s Remote Areas Program (RAP) delivers care to about 30 communities spread throughout northwestern Ontario, from the Kenora area all the way up to the Hudson Bay coast. It’s a landmass equal to the size of France.

The oral health needs of Indigenous people are costly. The program provides an opportunity to help improve their oral health status.

RAP pays a competitive per diem and covers travel, accommodation costs, and more. This is a rewarding program that you don’t want to miss out on. It’s a great opportunity to travel and get paid for contributing to a good cause.
