I'm ready for a career change

It's never too late to tackle new challenges. Becoming a Sun Life Financial advisor gives you the opportunity to embark on a bright new career – and to make the most of your talents and skills.

Becoming an advisor gives you direct control over your career. You'll have a new level of autonomy and flexibility, and the opportunity to help others while you become successful building your own advisory business.

I need more flexibility

Becoming a Sun Life advisor gives you the opportunity to build a work life that revolves around what's important to you.

You'll provide advice and guidance to help others achieve their dreams. You'll enjoy a flexible schedule, unlimited earning potential and the opportunity to advance – if that's what you choose. You will build credibility and be supported by a financially strong, deeply trusted organization.

I have recently moved

Many individuals have found a fresh start in our Distribution – regardless of where they came from or what they did before. They take pride in the stature they have achieved in their communities by helping their fellow Canadians achieve lifetime financial security.
