Abstract: The main aim of this paper is to determine the existence of a chance of development between the fi nancial sector and economic growth for countries in North America. This investigation is structured in two sections: fi rst a revision of theoretical aspects and techniques of causality, and the second, the causalities possible direction is analyzed, supporting it is the proof from the Granger, Toda / Yamamoto tests. It is concluded that the existence of a positive relationship between economic growth and the development of the economic sector for Canada and Mexico does exist. Nonetheless, in the case of the North American market, we can confi rm a null causality, according to what Granger said on fi nancial dynamics.
