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.

Public Lands OneStop Implementation Information Sessions

The Alberta Energy Regulator is hosting information sessions in Calgary and Edmonton to educate licensees and service providers on changes being made to the application process for public lands dispositions. Effective March 2019, all applications (new applications, amendments, renewals, cancellations, reinstatements) related to the following public lands dispositions must be submitted through OneStop:

  • 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 (RFA) (Temp. Field Authorization) (TFA)

These information sessions are recommended for licensees who hold, intend to hold, or assign any type of public lands disposition as well as third-party service providers, land brokers, land agents or surface land administrators, land surveyors, and industry associations. Attendees should be familiar with the Integrated Decision Approach (IDA) and the OneStop tool.

For more information about the IDA visit the OneStop website and/or watch the AER YouTube videos

AER Directive 39 Online Submission - OneStop Training Sessions

As announced in Bulletin 2018-33, the reporting for benzene under Directive 039 is moving to OneStop.

Training sessions will include instruction on how to:
•         complete a manual Benzene submission in Onestop;
•         prepare and submit a template for a benzene bulk upload submission;
•         amend bulk uploads;
•         manage compliance assurance.

To facilitate this change, the AER is offering training sessions at our Calgary head office and Edmonton regional office.  

Area-Based Closure Training has been delayed.

Please note that attendance is limited to two individuals per company. We require at least five participants to run a session. If we do not have enough participants, we may cancel a session and request that you register for another. Thank you for your understanding.

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.
