    News release
    November 19, 2018 – Ottawa-Gatineau – Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC)

    On November 28, provincial emergency management organizations will conduct public alerting tests across Canada. As such, test alerts should appear on every updated and compatible mobile device connected to an LTE (long-term evolution) wireless network in participating provinces and territories. The test alerts will be simultaneously distributed on radio and television.

    To assist the various alerting stakeholders in ensuring that there are no outstanding issues with the system, the CRTC recently required wireless service providers to distribute all additional wireless test alerts that provincial emergency management organizations issue.

    The alert messages will be identified as test alerts and will not require Canadians to take action. They will be sent out according to the following schedule:

    All province and territories (with the exception of Quebec)
