CAMPUT’s annual conference is the pre-eminent energy regulatory conference in Canada. Each May, we bring the perspectives of regulators, utilities, academics, communities, Indigenous Peoples, NGOs, consumer representatives, and advisers and legal counsel to a single forum focused on the leading issues in the national and international regulatory community.
Presentations and recordings from prior conferences can be found in our Conference Archive.

CAMPUT is an affiliate of The National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) in the US. NARUC is a non-profit organization dedicated to representing the State public service commissions who regulate the utilities that provide essential services such as energy, telecommunications, water, and transportation. NARUC’s mission is to serve the public interest by improving the quality and effectiveness of public utility regulation. NARUC holds summer and winter meetings, as well as an annual meeting.
