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.

Current Events

We have no industry information session planned at this time.

Training: Methane emissions reporting

The AER is offering training on methane emissions reporting. These one-hour tutorials will prepare industry for mandatory submission requirements that comply with Directive 060: Upstream Petroleum Industry Flaring, Incinerating, and Venting requirements. Submissions are due by June 1, 2020.

Please contact @email to request a session.

Quick reference guides are also posted on our website under Guides for Directive 60 Emissions Reporting.

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.
