Information bulletins

The purpose of an information bulletin is to notify industry regarding items such as proposed changes to legislation, regulations or operating procedures with the intent of soliciting feedback; new programs or changes to existing programs, projects, services, strategies or organizational structures; and industry participation in department initiatives.

Reference pricing and royalty rates can be found in information letters and mineral rights information bulletins are also available.

For specific oil sands information announcements, there are two oil sands subscription lists available to notify subscribers specifically for:

  • Oil Sands Royalty information announcements (OSRBUL)
  • Oil Sands Tenure information announcements (OSTIUL)

To subscribe or unsubscribe to either list, please visit subscriptions.

Information bulletins are available through Alberta’s open government portal, extending back to 1998.

Information letters

Information letters are available through a separate service. They notify industry of legislative changes. When letters are published a notification is sent to the subscriber list.
