Note(s):
Extramural payments are expenditures made for R&D performed by other organizations in Canada and/or in other countries. Other organizations include parent or affiliated companies, other non-related companies, private non-profit organizations, universities, hospitals, industrial and provincial research organizations, and other organizations including governments and individuals. Extramural R&D payments include expenditures by companies that performed R&D and companies that only made payments for R&D to other organizations. Components may not add to totals due to rounding.
