The Alert Ready system is designed to deliver critical and potentially life-saving emergency alert messages to Canadians…
Ontario and Quebec will test on Monday at 1:30 pm and the rest of the country will be tested on May 9th.
Wireless alerts will appear like a text message and will have a distinct sound and vibration meant to reinforce the alert message.
A wireless device that is turned off will not display an alert until it is turned back on if the emergency alert is still active in the area.
Don’t worry about charges as the CRTC has said that wireless providers are not allowed to charge a fee on your bill for this alert!
