Sun Life’s roots run deep in Canada, where our company began more than 150 years ago. Our business started with the sale of insurance and has expanded to offer wealth solutions and customized health programs to our clients. Today we are an industry leader touching the lives of millions of individuals and thousands of companies across the country – and many more millions of clients around the world.
Our Inclusion Scholarship & Internship program intends to support Black and Indigenous youth in Canada, providing both financial assistance and practical work experience as they start their careers. This Scholarship and Internship aims to help students get financial support, an exciting internship in a global financial institution, mentorship and professional coaching from our management team, and the possibility of a full-time employment opportunity with Sun Life following graduation.
We’re committed to creating an inclusive and diverse environment where everyone is treated fairly and respectfully, where everyone has equal access to opportunities and resources, and can fully contribute their thoughts, beliefs, perspectives, and talent. The Scholarship and Internship was named after former President and CEO, Dean Connor, for his passion and advocacy for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion throughout his career at Sun Life.
