On November 28th at 1:55 P.M. local time (2:55 P.M. local time in Quebec), a test of the Alert Ready emergency messaging system will be conducted.
The test will be distributed on TV, radio and compatible wireless devices.
Alert Ready is Canada’s emergency alerting system. It delivers critical and potentially life-saving alerts to Canadians through television, radio and LTE-connected and compatible wireless devices.
The Alert Ready system was developed with many partners, including federal, provincial and territorial emergency management officials, Environment and Climate Change Canada, Pelmorex, the broadcasting industry and wireless service providers. Together, these partners work to ensure Canadians receive alerts immediately and know when to take action to stay safe.
Please note, not all mobile devices will receive the test message. For general device compatibility, you can refer to the Alert Ready website here. It is also recommended that you contact your wireless service provider with specific inquiries regarding public alerting services and device compatibility. Individual providers will be best able to answer specific compatibility questions.
