Under the umbrella of the Alberta Utilities Commission Act, the AUC is governed by more than 10 pieces of legislation that regulate Alberta's energy resource and utility sectors.
The Alberta Utilities Commission Act was proclaimed and the AUC came into being on January 1, 2008, as a result of the realignment of the Alberta Energy and Utilities Board.
