TORONTO — Five things to watch for in the Canadian business world in the coming week:
BMO Capital Markets will host its 30th Global Metals & Mining Conference online from March 1 to 5. Shares in metals and mining companies have rebounded sharply from the lows of last March at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
TD CEO speech
TD Bank Group CEO Bharat Masrani is scheduled to address the Canadian Club Toronto in a virtual event on Tuesday. Masrani told analysts on Thursday that it was “too early to declare victory'' against the pandemic, even as TD was one of six Canadian banks that reduced its provisions for bad debt, citing better prospects for the economy.
George Weston earnings
George Weston Ltd. will be announcing its 2020 fourth-quarter results on Tuesday. The president of the company’s Loblaw grocery arm told analysts on Thursday that discount grocery stores are starting to win back market share after consumers flocked to conventional supermarkets at the outset of the pandemic.
Bombardier will host a virtual investor day on Thursday. The plane maker announced on Tuesday that it was the target of a cybersecurity breach that compromised confidential information related to its employees, customers and suppliers.
Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. will host a Q4 conference call on Thursday. The Calgary-based energy producer said in December that it plans to increase its capital spending next year by about 19 per cent to $3.2 billion.
