MONTREAL, Jan. 22, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Canal Vie, in partnership with Énergie Cardio, has launched across the province a new recruitment campaign for MAIGRIR POUR GAGNER: LE DÉFI DU QUÉBEC, the channel's new TV reality series on fitness to premiere in 2015. Marketed by Bell Media Mix, this major synergetic project will be deployed across all Bell Media platforms, including Rouge fm, which will allow the mobilization of communities in specific regions at specific times.

As the official sponsor, Énergie Cardio enjoys extensive visibility across all promotional platforms throughout the recruitment phase, which continues through the end of January. A TV campaign featuring Chantal Lacroix, the producer and host of MAIGRIR POUR GAGNER: LE DÉFI DU QUÉBEC, is currently running on Canal Vie. In addition, the campaign includes banners on the channel's website and the full sponsorship of the registration page. This partnership goes even further by involving Énergie Cardio's fitness centres into the recruitment process.

In collaboration with Canal Vie's content team, Bell Media Mix developed a tailor-made sponsorship program to seamlessly integrate its partners, proving enormously successful as all sponsorship opportunities were filled.

Auditions for those interested in taking part in MAIGRIR POUR GAGNER: LE DÉFI DU QUÉBEC will begin in February at several Énergie Cardio locations across the province. Hopeful participants can register at Énergie Cardio locations and online at www.canalvie.com.
