Air Canada veut racheter Aéroplan

Its a lie. 

Aimia's operations in Toronto are solely for the management of other loyalty programs like BMO and Banque Nationale, including their call centres. They also handle the inventory for Aeroplan redemptions. The new CEO is also based in Toronto, the two before him were based in London, UK. 

Aimia in Montreal has a big IT department at Vendôme, and almost all of Aeroplan's operations are in Tour Aimia. This includes systems management, accounting, HR, a call centre for Aeroplan, TD and CIBC, accounts management, etc. In other words, everything is done in Montreal relating to Aeroplan. Even the pay system is done in Montreal for all worldwide employees. It's also in Montreal that all the consolidation happens, and most upper finance management is in Montreal. 

 

Moi je souhaite pas un rachat. S'ils réussissent à obtenir un deal avec Oneworld, c'est une entreprise de Montréal qui gèrera le programme de fidélité pour 528M de passagers annuellement. Ça dépasse de loin ce que Air Canada peut offrir. Un rachat par Air Canada, c'est une vision trop étroite et court terme du potentiel de l'entreprise. 

Not a lie. The CEO and the majority of the decision making power (VPs) etc are not Montreal based. This is not to say that they don't have a large employment base in Montreal. The HQ could be in Ghana with 1,000 employees there, the importance is where the centre of power/decision making is situated.

Not really, first of all only the CEO is in Toronto for now. Most VPs are in Montreal or London (previously all of upper management was in London, but this will probably change now that Aimia doesn't have a big operation out of the UK). 

And to be fair, the CEO stays in Montreal 3 days a week (Aimia owns 2 condos in Altoria, directly above their offices)

Wait a second here.... the CEO of Couche Tard lives in Columbus, OH, but has a satellite condo in Montreal.

Folks, you heard it here first, Couche Tard is an Ohio based Company... ?

It's worse than Columbus, OH... it's Columbus, Indiana... even smaller and boring than the first one :P, I've been there before at Circle K head office... It looks like a converted warehouse without windows...

Everyone knows that non Quebecer would do all they could to avoid becoming Canadian Citizen and avoid the high taxes. So they manage to be more than 180 days outside of Qc or Canada and they are not required to pay those taxes (as Non Canadian Citizen). I think this is the reason behind the Couche Tard CEO, several hockey players and other High Profile Executives. This is not something new. That being said, it does not prevent them to be here when needed. It is hard to link their official citizenship to decision making of the company they work for in this context.
