Rural Remote Northern Program

The Rural Remote Northern Program (RRNP) compensates physicians who practice in under-serviced areas in Alberta.

The RRNP has 2 financial components:

  • flat fee payment – paid to physicians who practice and reside in an eligible community
  • variable fee premium – paid to physicians who provide services in an eligible community, whether or not they reside in an eligible community

RRNP documents

The RRNP helps in the recruitment and retention of physicians to under serviced areas/communities in Alberta. RRNP has been part of the clinical stabilization initiative since September 2007.
