Dates and Registration

CanREACH accepts participants in to the training program twice each year, beginning with the delivery of the licensed PPP mini-fellowship program. Our spring entry occurs in May and our fall entry occurs in November. As the PPP fellowship runs for 6-months, this allows CanREACH fully focus and engage with the current cohort of participants during the more formalized and intensive fellowship program and beyond via the other CanREACH services.


Our 2017 dates are as follows:


Spring 2017 Fellowship begins May 5-7, 2017 - *Sold Out

Fall 2017 Fellowship begins November 3-5, 2017 - *Currently Accepting Registration (over half full).

Spring 2018 Fellowship begins May May 4-6, 2017 - *Currently Accepting Registration;

Fall 2018 Fellowship begins November 2-4, 2017




Because CanREACH is only offered twice per year, space is limited and registration fills fast.
