Interim Posting Restriction in all Caribou Ranges

Alberta Energy is committed in establishing Alberta as Canada’s leader in permanent protection of caribou ranges. Effective immediately, an interim restriction has been placed on the sale of mineral rights within all caribou ranges in Alberta. This restriction applies to petroleum and natural gas, oil sands, coal and metallic and industrial mineral rights. The restriction is expected to remain in place until stringent operating practices have been defined, through directives or changes to the Enhanced Approval Process Integrated Standards and Guidelines, or upon approval of the appropriate range plan. Alberta Energy intends to resume mineral sales as range plans are released (so long as this aligns with the specific range plan details). This page on ETS will provide information on the release of the range plans as they occur.
