Alberta Energy is now half-way through its consultation workshops on regulations under the Responsible Energy Development Act, which will set out process and rules for the new Alberta Energy Regulator (AER). The workshops will be completed by mid-March. Earlier this week, we set out some broad reasons why Albertans should get involved in the consultations. Having gathered more information to let you know what Alberta Energy is asking and how these workshops are carried out, we’re back with a couple more reasons why you should speak up. Remember, you don’t need to read the Act, just have some opinions and ideas about how energy development in Alberta works and doesn’t work; how it should work responsibly in the future; and what you want your Alberta and your environment to look like going forward.
The Environmental Law Centre (ELC) has been seeking strong and effective environmental laws since it was founded in 1982. The ELC is dedicated to providing credible, comprehensive and objective legal information regarding natural resources, energy and environmental law, policy and regulation in Alberta. The ELC’s mission is to educate and champion for strong laws and rights so all Albertans can enjoy clean water, clean air and a healthy environment. Our vision is a society where laws secure an environment that sustains current and future generations.

Help us to continue to educate and champion for strong environmental laws, through tools such as our blog and all of our other resources, so that all Albertans can enjoy a healthy environment.
