How we regulate
The CER has a robust Regulatory Framework that provides the structure around which all of our activities take place. It includes the system of laws, regulatory documents and guidance used to regulate the parts of Canada’s energy industry that fall within our scope of authority. It also includes the regulatory approaches that evolve over time and guide our work.
- Regulatory Framework Plan: 2023 to 2026
