Will I receive emergency alerts on my wireless device if I’m travelling to another province or territory within Canada?

  • Updated

Yes. Emergency alerts are issued to a defined geographic area, such that only people in the defined area will receive the emergency alerts. If you are travelling and happen to be in another province when an emergency alert is issued, your compatible wireless device will receive the emergency alert within seconds of being issued, provided your phone is powered on and connected to the LTE or 5G cellular network. There is no need to enable the location services on your wireless device to receive alerts.
