COVID-19 Response Information

Last updated: March 25, 2020

CanIL Community,

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to move the 2020 CanIL Summer Program fully online, with no current plans for an on-campus summer session. See for more details about how you can take linguistics classes from anywhere in the world this summer!


  • All previously scheduled on-campus classes will be offered online via livestream. See here for a timetable.
  • Previously scheduled online classes will still be offered online as self-paced courses.
  • All of the usual reduced summer tuition rates will remain the same.
  • All of the usual financial aid will still be available.
  • The application deadline has extended to May 15.
  • Student orientation will still happen online. Time and date are TBD.


As the situation continues to develop, this page will continue to be updated.

Our summer program is hosted on the campus of Trinity Western University. For the latest up-to-date information about TWU’s response to COVID-19, see
