Why didn’t I receive an alert for an event that I know happened?

The decision to send a public emergency alert rests with the local, regional, provincial, territorial or federal authority. In some instances, the authorities choose to alert the public through channels like local news media via radio, TV, online instead of through Canada’s national public alert system, Alert Ready, that the AEA app is connected to. We suggest you contact the responsible authority to find out why they didn’t send the alert that you were expecting to receive.
