MONTREAL, Sept. 12, 2019 /CNW/ - Sun Life Financial Inc. (TSX:SLF - News) (NYSE:SLF - News) is proud to partner with 100 génies, a new Radio-Canada quiz show hosted by Pierre-Yves Lord. The show is a battle of wits between one hundred of the brightest 14-to-17-year-olds in the country, with a chance to win $26,000 in contributions to a Sun Life Registered Education Saving Plan.

Questions will challenge contestants on a wide range of topics so contestants and viewers alike will have the chance to hone their knowledge of different ways of achieving financial well-being. This is one more of Sun Life's many initiatives to help build sustainable, healthier communities for life.

"Quick minds and amazing general knowledge will be on display starting this evening on ICI Radio-Canada Télé's new show. Sun Life is proud to encourage young people to flourish intellectually. We believe in supporting their education and helping them develop an interest in investment, financial well-being and financial planning," said Robert Dumas, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sun Life Quebec.

The show will air on ICI Radio-Canada Télé, Thursday evenings at 8 p.m.
