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

Area-Based Closure Program 

The Alberta Energy Regulator is hosting industry information sessions in Calgary to educate companies on the area-based closure program. The program enables companies to work together in coordinating their closure programs for wells, facilities, pipelines, and sites across Alberta to help reduce cost, while being more efficient and effective.

The sessions will include the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, the Explorers and Producers Association of Canada, and the Petroleum Services Association of Canada. At each session, industry representatives will learn about area-based closure, hear success stories from companies who have already taken advantage of the program, and find out how they can benefit.

Seating is limited, so please register early.

Note: The sessions are limited to two representatives per company.

Companies operating in the Peace River area can expect an email from the AER regarding upcoming training on the new Directive 084 reporting process.

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.
