What to watch for in Canadian business this week:
Shaw Communications Inc. will hold a conference call on Monday to discuss its firstquarter results. The Calgary-based firm said in October that its federal regulator can best protect Canadians from problem sales practices by banning telecom companies from using outside contractors to do their door-to-door sales.
The Canadian Real Estate Association will release its December and year-end home sales numbers on Tuesday. CREA predicted in December that national home
sales will fall to a near decade low in 2019 amid rising interest rates and strict mortgage stress-test rules.
Kinder Morgan Canada Ltd. holds a conference call to discuss its Q4 results Wednesday. The CEO of its U.S.-based parent company said there’s a “seller’s market” for its assets such as crude tank storage and rail terminals in Alberta.
Statistics Canada will release its consumer price index for December on Friday.
