(361.2 KB)

For immediate release

Calgary, Alberta (Jan 21, 2020)…

Over the past few weeks, the board and executive team have worked together to finalize a new organizational structure. We wanted something that would help us to become more effective, efficient, and resilient and better support us in delivering on our mandate. The new structure is simpler, one with less hierarchy, less duplication, and more integration. It reflects and emphasizes our core functions:

  • adjudication and regulatory decisions;
  • environmental, energy, and safety oversight;
  • energy information; and
  • stakeholder engagement.

Over the next few weeks, leaders throughout our organization will be making decisions on how best to resource their teams and functions. This is a difficult time for staff, and resources are available for both those who depart and those who stay.

Our stakeholders may also wonder how they are impacted by these changes. Our Customer Contact Centre is always available to help direct questions to the right people. While some people’s roles may change, our work to regulate Alberta’s energy industry continues. We will not waiver in our focus to deliver our core business functions that work to protect public safety and the environment while ensuring responsible energy development.

We are confident that the new structure will help us focus on the efficient and effective delivery of our mandate.
