Commitment to community

Our success depends on the well-being of the communities we serve, and we believe we play a role in their development and sustainability.

We’re proud of our reputation as a good Canadian corporate citizen.

Through our many donations and sponsorships, we give back to communities across Canada – helping to improve the lives of individuals and families.

Our philanthropic support focuses on 2 key areas: health, with an emphasis on diabetes; and arts and culture, through our award-winning Making the Arts More Accessible® program.

We also partner with sports properties in key markets throughout Canada, allowing us to promote Sun Life’s philanthropic commitments to healthy and active living.

Our Public Accountability Statement outlines the social and economic impacts of our policies, programs and business activities.

Our support of health, with a focus on diabetes, ranges from promoting healthy lifestyles to improving the quality of daily life.
