C$ 10 billion). The key device categories noted were diagnostic imaging (21%), consumables (15%), patient aids (16%), orthopedics and prosthetics (10%), dental products (8%), and wheelchairs and other equipment (28%).

Also, as per Stats Canada, the export market for medical devices was valued at $2.2billion in 2021. Part of this came through high end research and world class medical devices, designed, and sold by manufacturers directly to the end user or alternatively promoted under private labels.
