Alert Ready in Ontario is part of a national program designed to deliver critical and potentially life-saving emergency alert messages to Canadians. These alerts are distributed through radio and television to ensure that Ontarians have the information they need in emergencies in order to take precautions necessary to protect themselves.
Beginning April 6, 2018, emergency alerts will also be sent to compatible mobile devices on LTE networks. Alerts on mobile devices will warn about dangers that cause imminent danger to life and property so that recipients can take appropriate action. Wireless public alerting is geo-targeted (applied to specific areas of coverage) ensuring it is relevant to those receiving the alerts.
NOTICE: A province-wide test of the Public Alerting system will take place on May 7, 2018 at 1:55pm and again on September 19, 2018.
