Manitoba Organization: Winnipeg Grain Exchange / Winnipeg Commodity Exchange
On 24 November 1887, a group of men including Daniel H. McMillan, George F. Galt, James A. Mitchell, Rodmond P. Roblin, Arthur Atkinson, Nicholas Bawlf, Samuel Spink, D. G. McBean, George J. Maulson, and Charles N. Bell met at the offices of the Winnipeg Board of Trade. They decided to organize the Winnipeg Grain and Produce Exchange, which became the Winnipeg Grain Exchange in the early 20th century, then the Winnipeg Commodity Exchange in 1972. Later known as ICE Futures Canada, it was closed in May 2018.
