Wireless Test Alerts Coming To Some Places In Canada On November 15

A new post on the Alert Ready website indicates that there are new tests of the system coming on November 15. Here’s where these tests will be conducted:

  • British Columbia: 1:55 PM PST
  • Manitoba: 1:55 PM CST
  • New Brunswick: 10:55 AM AST
  • Newfoundland & Labrador: 10:55 AM NST
  • Northwest Territories: 1:55 PM MST
  • Nova Scotia: 1:55 PM AST
  • Nunavut: 2:00 PM EST
  • Ontario: 12:55 PM EST
  • Prince Edward Island: 12:55 PM AST
  • Quebec: 1:55 PM EST
  • Saskatchewan: 1:55 PM CST
  • Yukon: 1:55 PM MST

On that day, you might want to shuffle around any Zoom or Microsoft Teams calls to way before or after those times so that you don’t interrupt those calls. The reason being is that the test alerts will hit TV, radio and wireless LTE devices. As in wearable devices that have LTE or phones that have LTE or 5G. The alert is loud and will get your attention as well as the attention of anyone else within earshot or on a Zoom or Microsoft Teams call. Thus consider yourself warned.
