About the AER

We are led by a board of directors that are appointed by an Order in Council. The board is not involved in our day-to-day operations and decisions, but instead sets the general direction of our work. Together, the directors

  • approve regulatory changes, and 
  • set performance expectations for our organization and our chief executive officer
