Emergency management officials from federal, provincial and territorial governments have long delivered emergency alerts to the public in partnership with Canadian broadcasters, led by The Weather Network owner Pelmorex Corp.

For the most part Canada mobile phones, tablets and other devices will receive a test alert on Wednesday, may 9th.
The test aims to familiarize the public with receiving mobile messages for emergencies like amber alerts or tornado warnings.
Consumers can not opt out of receiving public alerts on their wireless devices for public safety reasons. "That's why they were running tests - to see if something went wrong".
Devices may also play an eight-second audio tone, depending on volume settings.
The alert system is created to notify the public of imminent disaster or emergency such as a tornado warning, a biological threat of some kind, or the spill of hazardous materials. Similar to the system that caused panic in Hawaii at the beginning of the year when a message about an impending missile strike was mistakenly sent to cell phones.
