Get Involved

The Canadian Energy Research Institute is an independent, registered charitable research organization.  As such, sometimes our research interests are limited by our available resources.  If you have similar interests to our research team you can help, here’s how.

Become a Fellow

The Canadian Energy Research Institute is interested in creating relationships with experienced energy professionals.  Through our volunteer fellowship program we seek to provide an outlet for research activities not otherwise available to the energy professional in their existing career position.

As a fellow of the institute, the energy professional would have access to CERI’s data and proprietary input output model to explore their research question.  CERI would then be in a position to publish those efforts as a research report, article in a commodity publication or as a discussion in our Geopolitics of Energy journal.

If you are an experienced professional and are interested in working with CERI on a research question of interest, please contact us at  Include the word Fellowship in the subject line.


The Canadian Energy Research Institute is looking for secondments.  If you or anyone you know would be interested in placing a paid secondment at CERI, please let us know at Include the phrase Secondment in the subject line. This is not a paid position, CERI will not be responsible for remuneration, or re-location expenses (if those are incurred). Secondment candidates will benefit from one-on-one training with CERI staff on energy economics and modelling. Candidates must at the minimum possess an undergraduate degree in relevant discipline, some research experience is preferred but not required.

WRITE an article

The Canadian Energy Research Institute is looking for articles to feature in its commodity reports.  These articles should be from 2 to 5 pages and deal with a current issue surrounding the supply or demand for oil, gas, or electricity.  If you or someone you know is interested in donating an article for our publications, please contact us at  Include the words article author in the subject line. The article will be selected based on the author’s knowledge on the subject matter, and relevance to CERI’s research.

Our mandate is to produce fact-based economic and environmental analysis of energy issues.  Articles submitted for publication should be based on this same focus.  In addition, as an independent organization we do not take a position, suggest policy or make recommendations.  Submitted articles would be required to follow those same guidelines.
