Our name has changed! We’re now known as the BC Energy Regulator (BCER) and you can find us at This name change is part of legislation that also modernizes our board structure and will expand our mandate later this year. For more information, see the provincial government’s news release. Check back regularly as we continue making updates to our webpages to reflect these changes.

The Regulator is governed by a Board of Directors that sets strategic direction and ensures the Regulator’s operations are accountable, transparent and in line with strategic priorities.

The Board’s mandate is to make regulations that are within the jurisdiction of the Board and which the Board considers to be necessary; to consider various statutory and non-statutory reports; and, to provide effective oversight of the Regulator and its operations.
