AER response to COVID-19 - March 17, 2020 @ 3:30 pm

As the situation around COVID-19 continues to evolve, the AER is taking steps to protect our staff and stakeholders, while continuing our work to deliver on our mandate. This includes making decisions on applications, enforcing our requirements, and responding to energy-related incidents across Alberta. Effective immediately:

  • All AER offices remain open. However, AER staff are encouraged to work from home, where possible.
  • Meetings with stakeholders will be held virtually, instead of in-person.
  • The AER will continue to respond to energy-related incidents 24-hours a day.
  • Oral portions of AER hearings will not be held. We are reviewing our current and future adjudicative functions to ensure they remain fair and transparent, while protecting the health of everyone involved.
  • Our Customer Contact Centre will continue to respond to inquires.

The AER will continue to monitor and provide updates as the situation evolves.
