Marie-Chantal Côté is a thought leader and Senior Vice-President of the Sun Life Group Benefits Leadership Team. She has been instrumental in evolving their business to address clients growing needs. This includes improving health access through the launch of Lumino Health Virtual Care, lowering drug claims costs through their Reference Drug Program, and improving workplace mental health with their innovative mental health strategy toolkit. 

Marie-Chantal joins Robin & Al in a discussion centred on helping Canadians live healthier lives by taking control of their health through resources, such as the toolkit, that are available to Canadian employers looking to remove barriers for their employees and improve workplace mental health.

Mental health issues in the workplace are now the leading cause of disability leaves and the fastest growing disability claims area in Canada. As the pandemic has accelerated both expectations and need, Sun Life is endeavouring to make it easier for all Canadians to live healthier lives.
