The Canadian Energy Regulator Act will come into force on August 28, 2019. The National Energy Board (NEB) will then become the Canada Energy Regulator (CER).
The mandate of the NEB to provide energy information will continue under the CER. We will build on our 60 years of experience providing Canadians with neutral, independent, fact-based energy information, including analysis and statistics.
Looking back to 1959 when the NEB was established, energy information was already being provided to Canadians in the form of statistics, in collaboration with the Dominion Bureau of Statistics (what is now Statistics Canada). In its second year of existence, the NEB conducted special studies on several energy matters relating to energy forecasts, in cooperation with other government departments and agencies.
