CAMPUT’s annual conference is the pre-eminent energy regulatory conference in Canada. It brings the perspectives of regulators, regulated entities, consultants, consumer groups and academics to a single forum focused on addressing the most current topics in the national (and international) regulatory community.

2022 CAMPUT Conference

May 1 – 4, 2022, Sheraton WallCentre, Vancouver BC

Deep Dive into Disruption
It has been said that: “The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.” (Alan Watts, British author)

Join us as we consider whether taking the plunge is the best way to address change. We will plumb the depths of disruption, to guide regulators and stakeholders as they move with the forces of innovation and the urgent calls for climate and social action that are fragmenting the century-old monopolistic control of energy. Shall we dance?
