Smartphone Emergency Alert System

Release Date: April 6, 2018

In March 2015 the Alert Ready Emergency Alert System was launched. The national warning system was designed to deliver critical and potentially life-saving alerts to Canadians through television and radio. This system was established to ensure you receive alerts immediately and know what action to take to keep yourself and your family safe.

As of today, April 6, 2018, the Alert Ready Emergency Alert System will now be available on cellphones and wireless devices that are compatible with Wireless Public Alerting (WPA). Similar to TV and Radio, the National Public Alerting System will force these devices to sound an ominous alarm when an emergency alert is triggered.

A wireless device must meet the following requirements in order for emergency alerts to be received:

  1. It must be an LTE-device like a smartphone
  2. It must be WPA compatible
  3. It must be connected to an LTE cellular network at the time the emergency alert is issued.
