Among our employees and advisors, we have many exceptional people who give their time, talent, energy and money to help so many individuals and families in their communities.
Across Canada, our people are making their charitable mark. In 2011 they volunteered over 37,000 hours of their personal time to support 198 charities and organizations. 475 employees raised $129,000 in 2011 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation through Run for the Cure. Our employees also raised $809,820 for United Way/Centraide agencies across Canada.
It’s about lending a hand, sharing values and making better communities.
In Canada, Sun Life’s employee and advisor philanthropy program consists of 4 components: our United Way campaign, the matching gifts program, the Teams for Health program and the volunteer program, including our Volunteer of the Year awards which recognize outstanding dedication by employees, advisors and their families.
