Shopify says on its website that it is looking for people with experience in front end and back end development, data, mobile and infrastructure work to join the company. Shopify, which has the largest market cap of any company listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange, advertises that the new hires can be located anywhere because it is shifting to a primarily remote workforce.

The Calgary company building the Keystone XL pipeline is inviting oil shippers to bid for capacity expected to be made available when it opens in about two years despite a vow by the incoming U.S. president to halt the project. TC Energy spokesman Terry Cunha says about 80,000 barrels a day of capacity on the existing base Keystone export pipeline system is expected to be freed up when barrels are moved to the expansion pipeline after it is completed. He says those moves are written into contracts the company has with its oil shipping customers, adding he couldn't say how many shippers plan to switch volumes to the new pipeline.
