This paper seeks to investigate the determinants of banks’ profitability in Canada and the relationship between banks’ profitability and income diversification using a sample of 8 Canadian bank holding companies from 2000Q1-2016Q2. We divide the 66 quarters into two periods which are pre-crisis (2000Q1-2007Q2) and post-crisis (2007Q3-2016Q2) and use the ordinary least squares estimation technique to run a series of panel regressions for the whole sample and two periods, respectively.
