Giving Albertans a Voice

We hold events, such as community meetings and formal hearings, across the province to share information. We also want to hear from indigenous peoples, Albertans, and other stakeholders who inform our decisions about energy regulation.

Check this page for events in your area.


Hearing commissioners conduct oral, written, or electronic hearings on energy development projects. Our hearings calendar gives an update on the latest AER hearings, all of which are audio cast live.

Current Events

We have no industry information session planned at this time.

As announced in the Alberta Energy Regulator's (AER) Bulletin 2019-11, changes are being made to the application process for Public Lands Act applications. All submissions (new, amendments, renewals, no entry cancellations, site entry notifications, plan replacements, digital plans, and shapefiles) for land use activities must be submitted through OneStop.

Training sessions will include a high-level overview of OneStop, the Energy Development Planning (EDP) tool, and instructions on how to submit the following disposition types:

  • Mineral surface lease (MSL)
  • Miscellaneous lease (MLL)
  • Pipeline agreement (PLA)
  • Pipeline installation lease (PIL)
  • Licence of occupation (LOC)
  • Vegetation control easement (RVC)
  • Regulator Temp. Field Authorization (RTF) (formerly known as Temporary Field Authorization (TFA))

To facilitate this change, the AER is offering training sessions to impacted industry stakeholders at our Calgary head office, Edmonton and Fort McMurray regional offices, and Grande Prairie and Medicine Hat field centres.

Other Events

We engage with communities across Alberta by sharing information about the work that we do, helping people understand how to have their voices heard, and getting feedback on proposed changes to our requirements, to name a few ways.

Like most regulators, our requirements are often seen as complex and technical. To provide clarity to those who need it, we often host technical briefings to share updates and answer questions. These briefings take place in person or online. View past briefings on our YouTube channel.

Every year, we welcome delegates from around the world to learn about how we regulate energy resource development in Alberta. Learn more and register for our next summit.
