During the most recent quarter Canada's five biggest banks posted profits of $6.55 billion, a four percent jump from the $6.28 billion a year prior. The Bank of Canada, in a recent semi-annual report, stated that Canadian banks' exposure to European debt is "limited." In the report it shows the total holdings of debt from Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, and Italy of Canadian banks is approximately only eight percent of Tier 1 capital levels.
"The direct exposure of Canadian banks to the affected European countries is limited," the bank noted in its report. "However, should the crisis worsen and spread further across Europe, the impact on the Canadian financial system could be significant."

Reported diluted earnings per share (EPS) were $1.90, compared with reported diluted EPS of $1.80 a year ago. "CIBC was ranked as the strongest bank in North America and the third strongest bank in the world by Bloomberg Markets Magazine, the second year we have been recognized among the world's strongest banks," stated Gerry McCaughey, President and Chief Executive Officer.
Toronto-Dominion Bank saw second quarter profits jumped nearly 21 percent to $1.69 billion. "While we expect the second half of 2012 to remain challenging due to slowing loan growth, persistent low rates and regulatory headwinds, we're still working to deliver adjusted EPS growth in the 7-10% range this year," said Ed Clark, Group President and Chief Executive Officer.
