New National Test of the Wireless Public Alerting System

Hey Community,


On November 28, 2018, there will be a test of the Wireless Public Alerting System.

These test alerts will go out customers with enabled devices.


The test will occur at 2:55 p.m. in Quebec and 1:55 p.m. local time for the rest of Canada.


We’ve updated our automated system, websites and social media with messages about these test alerts.






If you have questions, keep in mind that you can visit  for more information.

Appreciate the advanced notice.  The last test, we actually did get the test alerts, but looking at the linked page, it appears are LG G4 phones are not on the Alert Ready devices list.  It is good to be aware that some devices are able to support the service.


I am sure that the alerts will also come in other ways, such as the radio or tv.
