This high-energy series redefines what it means to be smart. It shatters the myth that to be smart you need to have a high IQ, be a math whiz or trivia buff. Instead the show works on the Theory of Multiple Intelligences. In every episode, hopefuls battle it out in front of a live studio audience in six categories of smarts: musical, physical, social, logical, visual and linguistic.
Who will be crowned Canada's Smartest Person? The five finalists up for this year's title are a pro gamer, a Boy’s and Girl’s Club program director, a member of the Canadian national women’s rugby team, a mechanic and a commissioner for a recreational hockey league. Who among them will demonstrate the strongest range of multiple intelligences?

A copywriter, physical education teacher, a makeup artist, an innkeeper, a psychic medium and program director all go head-to-head to see who will earn a spot in Canada's Smartest Person season finale.
