Companies in the news:
Sun Life Financial Inc. (TSX:SLF). Down 35 cents or 0.53 per cent to $65.98. — Sun Life Financial Inc. joined a growing list of Canadian businesses that will require their employees to be vaccinated, but there are caveats. Sun Life said only employees that choose to return to the office during an ongoing back-to-work trial will have to be vaccinated. The insurance company recently announced it would allow most of the company's 12,000 employees to work from home as a long term policy. The company said they have been planning to implement a vaccination policy for on-site workers for some time. But employment lawyer Hermie Abraham said a vaccination policy such as Sun Life's is only legally tangible because of the fact that workers are still able to be unvaccinated and working from home.

Atco Ltd. says Dennis DeChamplain, chief financial officer of both Atco and Canadian Utilities Ltd., died unexpectedly from coronary failure on Monday.

He had served as chief financial officer at Atco since June 2017. The company said Brian Shkrobot will serve as interim chief financial officer of Atco and Canadian Utilities.
