Our Publications

The Institute publishes the results of its research and the proceedings of conferences which it sponsors as monographs and occasional papers. It also sponsors the publication of manuscripts on issues within its mandate.

A major publication of the Institute is its looseleaf service, the Canada Energy Law Service, published by Carswell. This service is a guide to the regulatory regimes administered by the National Energy Board and the Alberta Energy and Utilities Board.

The Institute also publishes a quarterly newsletter, Resources, which is distributed free of charge.
