Acts and Regulations
The Canada Energy Regulator (CER) operates under a variety of acts, regulations, rules, and guidance notes. We publish most of these and they are generally available free of charge in both official languages. As a government agency, we are responsible for administering acts and regulations, and for implementing government-wide regulatory initiatives.
- On 27 September 2022, the Canada Energy Regulator (CER) revised its Financial Regulatory Audit Policy (Audit Policy).
- The revised Filing Manual Guide O (Variances and Project Updates), Guide N (Review, Rescind, or Rehear), s. 1.5 (Confidential Filing), s. A.3.1 (Supply), s. A.3.3 (Markets), and Electricity Filing Manual s. 1.4 (Confidential Filing) have been published on the CER website and are now in effect.
