This report contains weekly crude runs (WCR) and refinery capacity for major Canadian regions. Crude runs represent the volume of crude oil processed by a refinery.
The Canada Energy Regulator regulates the export of refined petroleum products. Holders of export authorizations report monthly statistics on export activities.
This dataset provides historical export volumes of refined petroleum products (by year and month), and by product.
Companies importing and exporting electricity hold regulatory authorization from the CER and are required to report their export/import activities each month.
Generated electricity not consumed domestically is exported. Electricity trade with United States is affected by prices, weather, power-line infrastructure and regional supply and demand. All these cause trade to vary from year to year. Canada also imports some electricity from the United States. The integrated Canada-US power grid allows for bi-directional flows to help meet fluctuating regional supply and demand.
This dataset provides historical import and export volumes, values, and prices (by year and month) broken out by source …
Regulated companies are required by the Damage Prevention Regulations (DPRs) to immediately report all contraventions of the DPRs (e.g. failure to obtain consent, failure to comply with conditions of consent, failure to make a locate request). If the regulations are not followed when conducting an activity that causes a ground disturbance in the prescribed area, constructing a facility on, along, across or below a pipeline, or crossing a pipeline with vehicles or mobile equipment without consent, it is unauthorized, and illegal, unless otherwise authorized by the CER. Prior to November of 2020 contraventions of the Damage Prevention Regulations were referred …
This dataset contains a list of O&M Activities for which a notification was required. O&M Activities are carried out by companies to maintain a pipeline in safe operating condition. Companies are required to notify the CER of O&M Activities that meet any of the circumstances. For additional information see https://apps.cer-rec.gc.ca/REGDOCS/Home/Index.
This dataset contains a list of Notification of Contamination (NOC) submissions and the most recent annual update information (if applicable). Regulated companies are required to report contamination to the CER through the online submission of a NOC when Contamination is identified or encountered during any phase of the Facility’s lifecycle, and the presence of Contamination is confirmed through analytical sampling, or when Contamination resulting from an Incident cannot be remediated within 12 weeks of the Incident being reported to the CER.
This data presents details of pipeline incidents, as defined by the Onshore Pipeline Regulations and Processing Plant regulations, including cause information. The data ranges from 2008 to current; it is updated quarterly.
Canada has abundant resources of crude oil, with an estimated remaining ultimate potential of 52.3 106m³ (329 billion barrels) as of December 2017. Of this, oil sands account for 92 per cent. There are two major producing areas in Canada, the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin, which includes Alberta, Saskatchewan and parts of British Columbia and Manitoba, and offshore eastern Canada. Oil is also produced in modest volumes in Ontario and the Northwest Territories. Although Canada was the 4th largest producer in the world in 2018, it produces only about five per cent of total daily production, so it does not …
The Canada Energy Regulator provides data on incidents at CER-regulated pipelines and facilities, as defined by the Onshore Pipeline Regulations and Processing Plant regulations. Data is updated quarterly.
The data provided below, from 2008 to current, is what is used in the visualization tool on the Canada Energy Regulator's website. The source code for the visualization tool is also available.
The 2019 amended Fisheries Act (FA) contains a provision that will require DFO to have a public facing Registry to provide public access to records relating to fish and fish habitat protection and pollution prevention, including:
• Ministerial agreements
• Standards and Codes of practice
• Ministerial orders
• Fisheries Act Authorizations
• Permits for designated projects
• Fish habitat restoration plans
This work supports the Government’s goals around transparency, access, and accountability in federal decision-making.
The new online version of the FA Registry is now available to Canadians. This latest release includes the Fisheries Act Authorizations (updated automatically.)
