Sun Life Financial has signed-on as the official health and wellness sponsor of Canada Basketball. The agreement includes brand exposure on the jerseys of Canada Basketball's senior men's and women's teams. The jerseys will be worn at the upcoming FIBA Men's Basketball World Cup 2023 and FIBA Women's AmeriCup 2023 this summer. According to the company, Sun Life will use the sponsorship to promote physical and mental health and well-being. The multi-year agreement was negotiated by OVG Canada.
