Aritzia Inc. will release its first-quarter results and hold a conference call with investors after the close of financial markets on Tuesday. The results came after the Vancouver-based clothing retailer reported its fourth-quarter net revenue rose more than 40 per cent compared with a year earlier, helped by growth in the United States.
The Bank of Canada will announce its interest rate decision and release its latest monetary policy report, which will include its updated outlook for the economy, on Wednesday. The central bank raised its key interest rate last month to 4.75 per cent in the face of a series of hot economic data releases.
The Canadian Real Estate Association will release home sales figures for June on Friday. The association will also release its latest quarterly sales forecast. Canadian home sales in May posted their first year-over-year increase since June 2021 and the average price saw its first year-over-year gain in a year.
