Telus World of Science
Telus World of Science is a "brand" for a number of science centre, planetarium, and space centre facilities in Canada sponsored by Telus, a Canadian telecommunications company. Each of the science centres operate entirely independently and other than having sold their naming rights to Telus, there is no formal relationship between the different centres.
Telus has reportedly pursued similar donations, and corresponding name changes, for similar facilities elsewhere in Canada, including Toronto and Montreal. Presently both the Ontario Science Centre and the Montreal Science Centre count Telus among their lead sponsors, but have not seen fit to sell their naming rights.
