CAMPUT Annual Conference

The CAMPUT Annual Conference is CAMPUT’s most significant undertaking.  Each year, a member board or commission hosts this event. It is open to CAMPUT members, regulators, the utility industry, consultants, consumers, students and other interested parties. The main goal in setting the program content is to blend the fundamentals of utility regulation in Canada with current energy related topics and emerging regulatory issues. In this way, the Conference continues to be relevant and practical to commissioners, technical staff, utility managers, consumers and industry stakeholders.

Information on the next CAMPUT Annual Conference, and on recent past conferences, can be found via the “Conferences” tab on this page.

Annual General Meeting

CAMPUT meets every August or September for its Annual General Meeting.  This meeting is open to  representatives of member tribunals only and focuses primarily on the administration of the Association.


CAMPUT conducts an Energy Regulation Course each summer, at the Donald Gordon Conference Centre at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario.  The course is open to members as well as non-members.  CAMPUT also conducts specialized training, principally for its own members.

More information on the course is available via the “Training” tab on this page.
