Choose your territory…

In 2015, Canola Watch started sending issues out by province. In time, we will — when necessary — send reports and alerts to specific territories. To do this effectively, we need all readers to update their free Canola Watch subscriptions to select the region that best suits their location. To do this takes four steps and about two minutes.

1. Go to and click “Sign up” at the top right. Direct link.
2. Enter your information and click “Sign up” again. If you are already subscribed, you will get an error message asking you to “click here to update your profile.” Click the link.
3. This will trigger an email to you. Once that email arrives, click the “Update your preferences” link.
4. That takes you to the update page. Confirm that the information is correct (as you entered in step 2), including “What region best represents your location”. Make any corrections required. Then click “Update profile”.
