The ICE Canola contract is traded through ICE Futures Canada, the subsidiary of the Intercontinental Exchange formerly known as the Winnipeg Commodity Exchange (WCE). The canola futures and options are traded electronically.

ICE's futures and options on futures contracts for ICE Western Barley, ICE Canola and ICE Feed Wheat transitioned from the WCE trading platform to the ICE Trading Platform on December 10, 2007.[1]

Background

Canola is a genetic variation of rapeseed, developed by Canadian plant breeders for its nutritional qualities, particularly the low level of saturated fat. Canola is used to make cooking oil and biodiesel, a renewable fuel[2].

Canola is grown primarily in regions of Western Canada, with some acreage being planted in Ontario, the Pacific Northwest and north central US. Canola is also grown in other regions including Europe and Australia.
