Why didn’t I get an alert for an event that happened in my location?

The decision to issue an alert rests with the local, regional, provincial, territorial and federal authorities. If you are not sure that there was an alert issued by the authorities, follow these steps: 

  • Go to the NWT Alert website at http://www.nwtalert.ca/
  • Click on Archive > Calendar and select the date you believe there was an alert issued

If the alert you are looking for is not displayed in the “Past alerts for displayed map area” it means the authorities issued no alert. If you know there was an alert sent but you did not get it on the NWT Alert web app:

  • Check the Locations (Favourites) you have selected to receive notifications for.
