Companies in the news:
Laurentian Bank (TSX:LB). Up 81 cents, or two per cent to $40.93. Laurentian Bank of Canada chief executive Rania Llewellyn says that early in her career she was told by a manager that he was looking for a man to fill a job she was vying for. Llewellyn, who in October became the first woman to lead a major Canadian bank, made the comments at the The Empire Club of Canada in a celebration of International Women's Day. Llewellyn's speech came on the heels of a report from DBRS Morningstar, which found that the six largest Canadian banks score better than the Australian and U.S. bank averages on attracting, retaining, and developing women into senior leadership positions. But DBRS Morningstar also says BMO, Scotiabank, CIBC, National Bank, RBC and TD are on average falling behind the three large Australian banks on the issue of gender pay equity.
Air Canada (TSX:AC). Up $1.02 or 3.8 per cent to $27.92. Aeroplan is launching a partnership that will allow its users to earn and redeem points at Starbucks. The Air Canada loyalty program says members will need to link their Aeroplan account to a Starbucks Rewards account to allow them to earn both Aeroplan points and Starbucks stars. Once connected, Aeroplan users can earn points by loading money on their digital Starbucks card and can save when they redeem Aeroplan points for Starbucks gift cards. The new partnership follows a revamp of the Aeroplan program last year, based on feedback from its members. Air Canada says its members said they wanted more opportunities to earn and redeem points in their everyday lives. Air Canada reacquired the rewards program from Aimia Inc. in January 2019.
