TORONTO — Five things to watch for in Cana­dian busi­ness this week:

Grow­ing op­ti­mism: Farm and fer­til­izer sup­plier Agrium re­leases fi­nan­cial re­sults on Mon­day and holds its an­nual meet­ing on Tues­day in Calgary.

Drugged response: Valeant Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals In­ter­na­tional, Inc. holds its an­nual meet­ing at its head­quar­ters in Laval, Que. Share­hold­ers will have a chance to re­spond to the pay strat­egy for its top ex­ec­u­tives. Ex­ec­u­tive chair Joseph Papa got $62.7 mil­lion US in 2016.

Front page news: Torstar re­leases its first-quar­ter re­sults and then holds its an­nual meet­ing on Wed­nes­day. It’s the com­pany’s first in­vestor event since John Boyn­ton be­came Torstar’s CEO and the Star’s pub­lisher in March.

Home alone: Home Cap­i­tal Group re­leases its first-quar­ter re­sults Wed­nes­day. The mort­gage lender has been in the spot­light since the On­tario Se­cu­ri­ties Com­mis­sion al­leged it broke the law in its han­dling of a scan­dal in­volv­ing fal­si­fied loan ap­pli­ca­tions. Home Cap­i­tal has de­nied the al­le­ga­tions.

Jobs: Sta­tis­tics Canada re­leases its lat­est read­ing on the coun­try’s job mar­ket with the re­sults from its labour force sur­vey for April.
