Canola:
A Story of Canadian Innovation
Travelling Exhibit
April 24 - July 8, 2018

Canola

It does not get any more Canadian than Canola! Canada / ola (oil low acid).

How does a plant breeding innovation become, in just a few decades, the most profitable commodity for Canadian farmers? Part of its success is due to its versatility – this crop is used as a healthy culinary oil, a protein source for animals, to power cars and much more. Today, the canola industry contributes billions of dollars to the Canadian economy!

Produced by the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum to mark the 50th anniversary of this ‘Made in Canada’ crop, Canola explores the science behind the development, cultivation and future of this crop, as well as its uses in industries from food processing to transportation. Discover Canola through your five senses and immerse yourself within the environments of the two bright yellow pod-shaped structures - a canola field, and a processing plant.
