Forward Regulatory Plan: 2020 to 2022

Given the COVID-19 pandemic will affect the ability of regulated companies and impacted persons to participate in regulation development activities, the CER will not advance any new regulatory proposals at this time. Information on when consultation opportunities will occur will appear on the CER’s website including the Forward Regulatory Plan and the Consultation and Engagement Activities page.

This Forward Regulatory Plan provides information on regulatory initiatives that the Canada Energy Regulator (CER) aims to propose or finalize in the next 2 years through:

  • pre-publication in the Canada Gazette, Part I
  • final publication in the Canada Gazette, Part II

The Forward Regulatory Plan may also include regulatory initiatives that are planned to come forward over a longer time frame. Comments or enquiries can be made using the contact information included with each regulatory initiative.
