Abstract

The aim of this study is to examine the effect of adopted International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) adoption on the financial performance of banks in Nigeria and Canada. The study made use of cross sectional data obtained for a period of 10 years from 2006 to 2017, while the regression analysis was used to examine the impact of IFRS adoption on the earnings of 5 banks in Nigeria and Canada. The study found a significant and positive relationship between IFRS adoption and the banks in Nigeria and Canada. The study concludes that IFRS adoption has improved the decision making capability of the various stakeholders, thus, increasing investor confidence. The study suggests that, in order to safeguard the suitable adoption of IFRS in Nigeria and Canada, competent Accountants and Auditors in IFRS are required in large number and that the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria and Canada must intensify it efforts in organizing IFRS based training programs for its members and other parties connected with corporate reporting.
