In Canada, need exchange margins on VIX futures

Currently with IB, which is great except for the ridiculous VIX futures margin requirements.
I'm in Canada, I have a lifetime NT licence and need exchange margin. Would prefer a CIPF member.

Anyone have any suggestions or experiences?

Thanks,

You can trade the VIX over the CQG platforms: CQG Trader, Q Trader or CQG IC.
If you day trade, some of our FCMs provide 50% on initial or lower depending on your trading needs.
Some of our FCMs receive Canadian customers from most FCMs.

Thank you,

Any idea how well CQG trader works with NT? My lifetime licence was purchased before the 2014 cutoff date, so I should be grandfather to the initial broker offerings.

IB has an office and is insured in Canada. Are my deposits insured with you guys?

CQG has its own interface for trading and execution. It is it's own trading platform.
In the US Futures accounts are not insured, however fully segregated.
One of CQG's advanced platform is Q Trader, and it is here: https://futures.io/cqg/30214-cqg-q-trader.html
