In comparison, artificial parts of the body (not including artificial joints) garnered about 294.4 million Canadian dollars in import shipments. With respect to exports, composite diagnostic or laboratory reagents made up about 21.5 percent of the country's total medical device exports during the same period.

This industry is largely concentrated in Ontario, Quebec, and British Columbia. In Canada, medical device companies spend about 15 percent of their revenues on research and development (R&D), while small- to medium-sized companies spend an even larger proportion on R&D expenditures.
