It is important to note that not all Canadians will receive the test alert on their wireless device. This may occur for a variety of reasons, including device compatibility, connection to an LTE network, cell tower coverage, device software and settings.

Testing of any public alerting system provides an opportunity to validate and improve the end to end performance and reliability of the system to ensure it operates as it is intended to.
