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.
