Energy Information Program

Energy plays a fundamental role in the lives of all Canadians. From transportation to healthcare to the clothes we wear, every product and service in our country requires energy. Energy information serves to make sense of what is currently going on in the energy sector and where it may go in the future.

The CER is responsible for advising and reporting on energy matters. This includes collecting, monitoring, analyzing, and publishing information on energy markets and supply, sources of energy, and the safety and security of pipelines and international power lines.

Canada’s Energy Future

The Energy Futures series explores how possible energy futures might unfold for Canadians over the long term. In addition to our own quantitative analysis, the CER consults with industry, various government and non-governmental organizations, and academia in developing Canada’s Energy Future reports.

Market Snapshots

Regular, brief publications on a variety of energy topics that are relevant to everyone in Canada. Snapshots explore emerging trends in various segments of the energy market.

Pipeline Profiles

The Pipeline Profiles are a one-stop shop for detailed information and regularly updated data on Canada’s major oil and natural gas pipelines regulated by the CER.

Provincial & Territorial Energy Profiles

The profiles are a detailed breakdown of energy production, transportation, trade, consumption, and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in each Canadian province and territory.


The CER Export and Import Reporting Regulations require companies that import gas and export gas, natural gas liquids, oil, and electricity to submit monthly reports to the CER. The reports include data such as volumes, port of entry/export, and origin/destination. The CER shares regulatory statistics on the commodity pages of our website, and with other federal departments.
