The Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) is responsible for regulating the life cycle of oil, oil sands, natural gas and coal projects in a manner that protects public safety and the environment.

As a key economic driver, Alberta’s energy sector requires a well-designed, single regulator to regulate the responsible development of our energy resources.

We are reviewing the AER to identify enhancements to its mandate, governance and system operations to ensure Alberta remains a predictable place to invest and a world leader in responsible resource development.

Get involved

We want to hear from stakeholders and interested Albertans on ways to improve the AER.

The review will include:

  • in-person stakeholder workshops with industry, municipal and professional associations, government departments and Indigenous groups
  • interviews with individuals who are or have been involved in the governance of the AER
  • online form for interested Albertans to provide feedback
