Is there anywhere in topology where one would see the Chinese Remainder Theorem?

let me fantasize a little. In essence the chinese remainder theorem is a result that allows us to conclude surjectivity from injectivity. such theorems exist also in topology, such as the fact that an embedding of a compact manifold in a connected manifold of the same dimension should be surjective? is that true? something like that anyway. ok this is a bit far out. but so is the question.
