The Responsible Energy Development Act (REDA) establishes the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) and sets out its mandate, structure, powers, duties, and functions. REDA was proclaimed in part on June 17, 2013. Further parts of REDA were proclaimed on November 6, 2013. The remaining parts were proclaimed on March 29, 2014.
The regulations (listed below) made by the Lieutenant Governor in Council under REDA provide more details about the legislative framework of the AER, including principles governing the transition of the ERCB to the AER and the transfer of jurisdiction over the specified enactments (also below) to the AER.
Energy resource enactments are the acts, regulations, and rules governing energy resource development in Alberta that the AER administers:
Energy Ministerial Order 105/2014and Environment and Sustainable Resource Development Ministerial Order 53/2014, pursuant to section 67 of the Responsible Energy Development Act, make the Aboriginal Consultation Direction, in the attached Appendix.
The AER has developed an interim (i.e., draft) regulatory guide to explain how the new system for regulating the full life cycle of energy projects in Alberta operates. The guide also provides an overview of the AER’s application and decision-making processes. Although the guide helps explain many of the acts and regulations listed above, it is not intended as a substitute for the legal documents themselves. To the extent that there may be inconsistencies between this document and the applicable legislation or regulations, the latter govern.
