Affiliated Organizations

Alongside the member seminaries that anchor our programs, several educationally-oriented ministry organizations work in affiliation with ACTS to provide specialized training.

Canada Institute of Linguistics (CanIL)

CanIL offers training in linguistics and translation for individuals who will serve as Bible translators or work in related forms of linguistic and literacy ministries around the world. CanIL operates in affiliation with ACTS, providing the linguistic training component for the Master of Applied Linguistics and Exegesis program. CanIL also functions as the linguistics department of Trinity Western University. Each summer CanIL operates the Summer Institute of Linguistics (SIL) program in Canada. The institute integrates scholarship with service to language communities worldwide.

The Vancouver Institute for Evangelical Worldview (VIEW)

Director: Dr. Paul Yang

VIEW established an affiliate relationship with ACTS in 1999. The institute manages Korean-language delivery of a number of courses in Christian worldview aimed at Christian Korean professionals. Our affiliation arrangement allows these courses to be offered for graduate credit through ACTS and TWU. They can be applied toward an ACTS Diploma in Christian Ministry or Master of Arts in Christian Studies, each with specializations in Worldview Studies in Korean.
