The Canadian Energy Research Institute is an independent, not-for-profit research establishment created through a partnership of industry, academia, and government in 1975. Our mission is to provide relevant, independent, objective economic research in energy and related environmental issues. We strive to build bridges between scholarship and policy, combining the insights of scientific research, economic analysis, and practical experience. In doing so, we broaden the knowledge of young researchers in areas related to energy, the economy, and the environment while honing their expertise in a range of analytical techniques.
Mission and Vision
Our mission is to provide relevant, independent and objective economic research in energy and environmental issues to benefit business, government, academia and the public.
The Institute envisaged by the Board of Directors is a unique research-focussed organization whose output and staff are very highly regarded and respected both in Canada and abroad.
CERI's economic studies are highly relevant and objective and the analysis and advice contained therein are sought by government and business planners and decision-makers.

Because of its reputation, the Institute is often represented on national and international advisory panels and at conferences and symposiums deliberating energy and related environmental issues.
Members of the research team are proud to belong to an organization which is sought after by Canadian and foreign organizations because of its analytical capabilities and the insight and knowledge which it brings to a wide range of issues. Potential staff members are attracted to CERI literally from around the globe because of the challenging issues being addressed at the Institute and its reputation.
Board of Directors
During 35 year of operation, the Canadian Energy Research Institute has established a reputation for successful achievement in the area of energy research. Its continuing success and reputation are dependent on its research remaining objective and non-partisan as well as relevant to the times. A number of factors serve to assist the Institute to meet its goals. The Institute's funding structure is designed to encourage support from the Canadian Government at the Federal and Provincial levels as well as a broad corss-section of private sector energy interests in order to minimize dependence upon any single source of funding from within the business community. Public sector support from across Canada contributes to the assessment of energy issues from both national and regional perspectives.
The CERI Board of Directors consists of representatives of the Institute's sponsor organizations and embodies a unique range of experience and expertise.
CERI's key personnel have biographies available online.
