CanIL Fraser Valley Fundraising Ride
Franco Papalia and Cap Wealth Management were honoured to be the title sponsor of the CanIL (Canada Institute of Linguistics) Ride. Alistair Jackson, Vice President of Development sent the following note to Franco Papalia:“It was a momentous day when you stepped up as title sponsor of CanIL’s Inaugural Heart-Language Ride. Your belief in our ultimate mission to see ‘communities transformed through engaging with God’s word in their own language’ has had a continuous ripple effect through our student, staff and faculty, business and donor community.”
CanIL has been offering quality linguistic and literacy training in Canada since 1985. Their programs have been steadily growing as more students from all over the world are drawn to their highly experienced faculty. CanIL alumni have successfully gone to serve language communities in more than 40 countries. They do linguistic research, Bible translation, literacy development, language survey, orthography development, language software development, teaching English as a second language and many other linguistic and cross-cultural activities.
In an effort to help students financially throughout their academic career, CanIL works hard to offer a number of scholarships, bursaries and ministry launch awards. The CanIL 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.
