The Sun Life Centre in Toronto, Ontario was built in 1984 to house the Toronto operations of Sun Life ( now Sun Life Financial) and is now corporate headquarters for Sun Life.

Located at the corner of King Street West and University Avenue, the taller East Tower is in the Financial District while the slightly shorter West Tower is located in the area known as the Entertainment District.

The top floor of East tower, as well as space on 16th and 25th floor is occupied by the St. Andrew's Club and Conference Centre and provides excellent views of the city. The Sun Life Centre is connected to Toronto's PATH system and the two towers share an underground connection to St. Andrew Subway Station.

Toronto's Sun Life Centre complex should not be mistaken for the Sun Life Building in Montreal, the former head office.

In 2010, the Sun Life Centre was awarded LEED Gold certification under the Canada Green Building Council's LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance green building rating system.[4]
