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

first_imgTORONTO – Five things to watch for in the Canadian business world in the coming week:Looking for Jordan: The case resumes Wednesday against several former SNC-Lavalin and hospital executives charged with fraud in Montreal. The court will hear a motion from the lawyer for one of the accused to quash the case under the Jordan ruling, which set strict limits on the wait times for criminal trials.Poker face: The online gambling company formerly known as Amaya Inc. will face questions Wednesday at a hearing in front of the Ontario Securities Commission, which is investigating allegations of insider trading surrounding the 2014 purchase of PokerStars.Factory figures: Statistics Canada will release its monthly survey of manufacturing for September. Sector sales rose 1.6 per cent in August, their first move higher after two consecutive monthly declines.Not dead, yet: The fifth round of talks for renegotiations of the North American Free Trade Agreement kicks off in Mexico City on Friday. The talks are on increasingly shaky ground after a terse end to the last round of talks as the U.S. appears closer than ever to acting on its threats to cancel the agreement.Awaiting inflation: Statistics Canada releases the consumer price index for October on Friday. The country’s annual inflation rate continued to accelerate in September, with a reading of 1.4 per cent that brought the data point closer to the Bank of Canada’s ideal target of two per cent.last_img
