’’Cirque du Soleil is a shining example of making the impossible, possible through creativity, collaboration, and preparation,” said Jacques Goulet, President, Sun Life Canada. “With this partnership, we’re inspiring Canadians to take the same approach when planning for their future.

Through innovative products and services, proactive education, and improved access to and use of insurance and wealth products, Sun Life is committed to supporting Canadians’ financial security and wellbeing in a rapidly evolving world. Yesterday, at the Cirque du Soleil headquarters, 10 young people aged 11 to 12, from Maison Kekpart de Longueuil were given the opportunity to test their acrobatic skills and dream big. With guidance from circus artists, participants discovered the intrigue of the aerial hoop, mastered physical strength, and embarked on a journey of teamwork like never before. They also toured behind the scenes at the Montreal-based International Headquarters, learning a few of the secrets behind the entertainment company’s outstanding international success. At the event, each youth was surprised with a gift from Sun Life to help them take the first step in investing and achieving their dreams. They also had the opportunity to speak with a Sun Life advisor about the importance of planning for the future.

’’At Cirque du Soleil, our commitment goes beyond the performance,” said Stéphane Lefebvre, Chief Executive Officer, Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group. “We are thrilled to reaffirm our partnership with Sun Life to foster long-lasting relationships with Canadians in a creative and inspirational manner.
