Nous degageons un profil de la diversification des societes dans l'economie canadienne a l'aide d'une base complete de micro-donnees sur les entreprises canadiennes et de donnees au niveau des industries sur les flux des echanges. Notre analyse vise deux objectifs majeurs. Nous decomposons premierement la diversification des societes en elements horizontal et vertical en nous fondant sur le degre auquel les industries sont reliees entre elles par les flux des echanges. Les decompositions en elements horizontal et vertical servent d'approximations utiles pour definir les facteurs strategiques qui sous-tendent les strategies de diversification. Notre second objectif consiste a verifier si les tendances sur le plan de la diversification sont etroitement associees a certaines caracteristiques des industries. Nous examinons dans ce cas des facteurs au niveau des industries qui, suivant un postulat general, ont des consequences sur le degre de diversification (comme la croissance, la concentration et l'intensite d'utilisation des connaissances) au meme titre que d'autres variables concues pour evaluer si les structures de propriete diversifiees sont associees aux flux des echanges entre les industries. Notre analyse de regression fait appel a trois mesures empiriques de la diversification : premierement, l'ampleur de l'entropie totale (c'est-a-dire la diversification) a l'interieur d'une industrie, deuxiemement, l'entropie moyenne par entreprise et, finalement, le pourcentage d'entreprises dans une industrie qui se diversifient.
