My classmate had her evaluations done via IM and phonecalls. This was ten years ago, so I don't think it's a totally off the wall request.
I'm not saying it's totally off the wall, just that it might not be easy for the college to do, due mainly to the shortage of clinical placements in the GTA in recent years.
The final placements are hard to come by these days as there are so many people in the programs, so clinical placement coordinators are having a hard time finding enough placements for everyone. They rely on their contacts at the hospitals and LTCs in their area, and so it's more difficult (though not necessarily impossible) for them to set up placements at hospitals and LTCs where they don't have pre-standing relationships. For example, Seneca, Centennial and Humber College all utilise hospitals in Toronto for their placments. Mohawk usually uses hospitals in Hamilton and Burlington. If Mohawk wants a placement in Toronto, it's a bit more difficult to set up, as there are already so many other students vying for those spots who attend schools that have pre-existing relationships with the right people at those hospitals. It's not impossible, just more work to set up.
If the OP's cousin knows anyone who would be willing to take her on and precept her, that might make things easier for her clinical coordinator as well.
