Distinctives of CanIL

Canada Institute of Linguistics courses are held at Trinity Western University, located in Langley, British Columbia.

CanIL integrates scholarship with service to language communities worldwide. CanIL provides a streamlined sequence of courses to prepare students for language and culture learning, literacy-based development, and Bible translation.

CanIL offers a wide-range of training options including short-term training tracks (2 to 4 semesters) for a variety of language development roles, undergraduate degrees with a major or minor in linguistics and two graduate degree programs. We offer an intensive summer program with reduced tuition for many of our courses. For students interested in training tracks or graduate degrees, we highly recommend attending summer session for optimal course sequencing.
