How can I expect to receive an alert? Why was the alert only sent on one platform?

  • Updated

It is at the sole discretion of the provincial & territorial government issuers to choose if and when to use the Alert Ready system. If they decide to issue an alert they choose what platforms an alert will be distributed on. A government issuer has the option of distributing an emergency/public alert via:

  • TV and radio
  • Wireless devices
  • Or on all platforms
