Accelerate your leadership development
Make an impact that matters in the real world
Collaborate with other high performers in a supportive team environment
To participate in the Actuarial Development Program, you must:
Preparing for the exams
As an actuarial analyst in the program, you'll get the opportunity to rotate among different areas within Sun Life. This way, you'll gain exposure to different fields of actuarial work and find the area that's most interesting – and most suited – to you.
The Actuarial Development Program will help you pass the actuarial exams and develop the skills necessary for success in the actuarial field. Jointly sponsored by the Society of Actuaries and the Canadian Institute of Actuaries, this is an intense series of exams that require dedication, commitment and the discipline to maximize study time. You'll receive time off from work to study, compensation incentives for passing exams and exam fee reimbursement.
In addition to our full-time actuarial staff, we also provide opportunities for co-op and internships by offering roles that are geared towards students currently enrolled in a university program. You'll work on quality projects and gain valuable insight into the challenges and opportunities the actuarial profession can offer. Get a head start on your career – and start developing the skills you'll need before you graduate.
Passing the exams is the foundation of your actuarial development, but that's just the beginning. Sun Life sponsors our actuarial staff to attend professional meetings, seminars, conferences and classes in order to support continued professional development and relationship building with actuaries from other companies. Sun Life values its employees' dedication to the profession.
