Montreal’s Sun Life Building Turns 100

Comedy Club Montreal

 

The Sun Life building in Montreal is celebrating its centenary this year. When it opened, the 26-storey structure was the tallest building in Canada. It was also the biggest building in the entire United Kingdom.

In this video, Heritage Montreal’s Alexander Venditti discusses the imposing building’s history.

That includes Great Britain’s Operation Fish, in which important documents were shipped to Canada during World War II in crates labelled as containing food. They were then stored in one of the Sun Life building’s vaults.
