Canadas Smartest Person

CANADA'S SMARTEST PERSON is a new interactive television series that redefines what it means to be smart. We’ll shatter the myth that to be smart you need to have a high IQ, be a math whiz or trivia buff.

Every week four new hopefuls battle it out in front of a live studio audience in six categories of smarts: musical, physical, social, logical, visual and linguistic. In the series finale eight finalists will go head to head to earn the title of Canada's Smartest Person. It's a whole new way of looking at smarts!
