HI mala.jayatilleke@ucc.edu‌, great question.

You had me going in to see if I could get a module URL. Looks like I couldn't. BUT all is not lost. I was thinking that if you grab the URL of the first element of the module that will be all you need. It could be a page, assignment, discussion, quiz... whatever is first. 

Sing out if you need a hand.

Thanks Bobby.  I came on looking for exactly this question.  I have made the first item of the module an introductory page which has links to everything else in the module.

Sounds like you are on the right track.

Yeah, how to get a URL for a specific module?

As has been mentioned, one doesn't need an actual URL to add a link to Canvas content (use "Course Links" instead).  However, the URL would be useful in other situations, like sending a message with a deep link that navigates to the specific module.
The clunky method I've used is temporarily editing some course content--any page I can safely play with momentarily--adding the course link to the module, and copying the URL that gets created (then re-editing the page to remove the link).
