Aeroplan service fees are always charged separately from the charge/refund by AC on the ticket cost.

As for HST and why one company charges it and another doesn't and on what transactions it applies and at what rate, it's not so simple as to whether one is a Canadian company or not. There are tax professionals who specialize in this. If you're really curious, look up "GST Place of Supply Rules", but prepare for a very long read. There are a lot of situations that are not so clear, and a ton of variables. But, no, Aeroplan is not charging HST just to pocket it!
