TORONTO - Five things to watch for in the Canadian business world in the coming week:

Tilray results

Tilray Inc. will hold a conference call to discuss its financial fourth-quarter and full year 2018 results on Monday. The Nanaimo, B.C.-based pot grower signed a deal in February to acquire Hemp Hearts-maker Manitoba Harvest for up to $419 million in cash and stock as the two companies look to launch CBD-infused products where permissible in the U.S.

Budget day

Finance Minister Bill Morneau tables the 2019 federal budget and delivers his budget speech on Tuesday. Morneau has hinted that the budget will include measures to help Canadians cover their bills if they choose to head back to school to boost their skills or change careers.

Couche-Tard checkup

Alimentation Couche-Tard will release third-quarter earnings on Tuesday. The Quebec retail giant recently announced it is teaming up with cannabis company Canopy Growth Corp. to support a privately run pot shop in London, Ont.

BRP results

BRP Inc. reports fourth-quarter results on Friday. The Quebec-based maker of sporty recreational vehicles is targeting a growing market of baby boomers who are turning in their motorcycles for safer, more stable three-wheeled bikes.

Inflation update

Statistics Canada will release its consumer price index for February on Friday. The federal agency said the country's annual inflation rate decelerated in January to 1.4 per cent in large part because of lower prices at the pump.
