It's better than vegetable and blended oils but not as good as olive oil and flax.

It appears as though the macros are very similar. I don't know, I guess it's just that we know that olive oil is produced/pressed in a very basic process.

Olive oil:
Olives are pressed and the liquid is bottled.

Canola oil:
At least 2 extra steps of processing, of which some sort of "cooking" is required.

Olive oil is much less processed than canola oil.

Additionally, and I don't know how substantiated this claim is, but the seed that canola oil comes from (rapeseed) is genetically altered. Apparently, canola oil is a creation of science. Which isn't always a bad thing.
