Community life is an important part of the CanIL experience! We believe that an optimum learning environment enables people to thrive academically, as well as relationally, physically, and spiritually. Here is a sample of the many activities we participate in as a community throughout the year.

Community life at Summer@CanIL

During our 9-week summer classes, a close-knit community is developed through community-based living on the Trinity Western University campus. In addition to this, students and staff participate in chapel, prayer times, weekly multi-cultural celebrations, shared meals, outdoor activities and more.

CanIL Heart-Language Ride

In an effort to help our students financially throughout their academic career, CanIL works hard to offer a number of scholarships, bursaries and ministry launch awards. The Heart-Language Ride gives students, staff, and other interested individuals the opportunity to raise funds and awareness for training the next generation of Bible translators, literacy specialists, scripture engagement workers, cross-cultural trainers, and minority language development workers.
