Announcement - February 21, 2014

Effective stakeholder engagement is a major part of the AER’s commitment to being a best-in-class energy regulator. During REP Phase 2 implementation in December 2013, the AER hosted information sessions for industry to communicate regulatory and operational changes to the AER. Based on feedback received from previous sessions, the AER is working to more closely align Phase 3 information sessions with the needs of our stakeholders.

To accomplish this, the AER will be accepting questions prior to the REP Phase 3 information sessions. Questions received will guide each presentation to ensure that the information shared is of the greatest benefit to our stakeholders. Questions will be accepted until Friday, February 28, 2014, and will be grouped into the following topics:

  • Reclamation Certification Program
  • Conservation and Reclamation Assurance
  • Remediation Management
  • Remediation Certificate Program
  • EPEA/Water Act Approval Applications
  • Mine Financial Security Program
  • Reporting and Operational Authorizations
  • Compliance and Enforcement
  • Other (e.g., in flight application process)

AER industry information sessions are scheduled for March 19-21, 2014. Participants can register for the sessions beginning March 3 on the AER website.

   The submission is now closed - we thank you for your input!
