Our history

SLPC 25033 2/15 (exp. 2/17)

When Mathew Hamilton Gault received a charter for The Sun Insurance Company of Montreal in 1865, few could have foreseen that the fledgling company would grow to become a leading international financial services organization.

What a difference a century and a half makes.

Today, Sun Life Financial is an international success story. We take great pride in our heritage and international presence that has enabled us to touch the lives of millions of people around the world and help them achieve lifetime financial security. Our rich history is our foundation and inspiration as we continue building Sun Life today and for the generations to come.
