Five things to watch for in the Canadian business world in the coming week

TORONTO — Five things to watch for in the Canadian business world in the coming week:

Home sales

The Canadian Real Estate Association will release its home sales figures for August on Monday. The housing market has been regaining strength in recent months after a soft 2018 and weak start to this year.

Canopy Growth AGM

Canopy Growth Corp. holds its annual meeting on Tuesday in Toronto. Interim chief executive Mark Zekulin recently said the mood at the cannabis producer has “never been better,’” two months after its charismatic co-founder was ousted from the top job and as pressure mounts for the company to reach profitability.

Scotiabank shindig

Scotiabank hosts its 23rd annual back-to-school conference on Wednesday in Toronto. The event features appearances by executives from Canadian retail and consumer-oriented companies such as Loblaw, Cineplex and RBI.

Inflation update

Statistics Canada releases its consumer price index for August on Wednesday. The agency’s previous monthly report found that Canadian annual inflation came in at two per cent in July to hit the Bank of Canada’s ideal target for a second straight month.

More economic data

Statistics Canada will issue pair of reports next week that will provide further insight into how the economy kicked off the third quarter. The agency will release its monthly survey of manufacturing for July on Tuesday and July retail trade figures on Friday.
