Interview opportunities from the May Report on Business magazine
ROB profiles two Canadian women at the top in the world of banking and
TORONTO, April 22 /CNW/ - As Head of the Office of the Superintendent of
Financial Institutions (OFSI), Julie Dickson is Canada's top financial
regulator. When she talks, CEOs take notes. She's been instrumental in keeping
Canadian banks stable through one of the worst economic crises in recent
history, but according to her, she's nobody's saviour. The self-effacing
Dickson even demurred when asked to have her picture on the cover of this
issue. Modesty aside, she has legal authority to take as tough measures as
necessary to ensure the health of Canada's 450 banks and insurers.
Collectively, the financial bodies in her charge manage $3.75 trillion in
assets. Business writer Tara Perkins takes an in-depth look at the most
powerful woman in Canadian banking in the May issue of Report on Business
magazine, available Friday, April 24.

A Games of Her Own - Report on Business writer Timothy Taylor profiles
Cathy Priestner Allinger, the ultimate serial Olympic organizer. Working on
her fourth Winter Olympics, the former speed skating silver medalist is
executive vice president of Sport and Games Operations for the Vancouver 2010
Olympic and Paralymic Winter Games. Among management facilities, and other
functions, she is also the main liaison with all visiting nations: 80 for the
2010 Olympic Winter Games and 45 for the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games. And she
is responsible for a volunteer workforce of 23,000 people. It sounds daunting
but the former Olympian keeps in mind that no business challenge will ever be
quite as intense as the 500 metres across unforgiving ice.
The Day the Axe fell - More than 300,000 Canadians have lost their jobs
