Companies in the news:

The department says Air Canada received 969 refund complaints out of 7,568 in April, or 13 per cent, outpacing more than 80 carriers in the category. The Montreal-based airline ranked third for refund complaints of any carrier, after United Airlines and American Airlines. Air Canada and other Canadian airlines have refused to reimburse most customers whose flights were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Tim Hortons mobile ordering app is being investigated by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada and provincial agencies in Quebec, B.C. and Alberta. The joint investigation was prompted by concerns raised in media reports about how the app may be collecting and using data about people’s movements as they go about their daily activities. It will examine whether the fast food restaurant chain owned by Restaurant Brands International Inc. is in compliance with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act, Canada’s federal private sector privacy law.
Great-West Lifeco Inc. (TSX:GWO). Down one cent to $23.27. Great-West Lifeco Inc. will shell out more than US$800 million to buy U.S. investment manager Personal Capital — and its chief executive hinted the company is prepared to dip into its coffers again if other promising deals come along. Great-West subsidiary Empower Retirement said Monday that it will pay US$825 million for the hybrid wealth manager that combines a digital experience with personalized advice delivered by people. It could spend up to US$175 million more, if specific target growth objectives are met.
Aurora Cannabis Inc. (TSX:ACB). Down seven cents to $17.02. Aurora Cannabis Inc. says co-founder Terry Booth has retired from the company’s board of directors. Booth stepped down as chief executive in February, but had remained a member of the board of the cannabis company. Michael Singer, Aurora’s executive chairman and interim CEO, says Booth helped set the table for the company to lead in Canada and around the world. The move comes as Steve Dobler, another co-founder of the company, prepares to retire as president and a director of the company at the end of the month.
