The Emergency alert issue is currently being investigated. Ensuring that we avoid these situations is exactly why these tests are performed. A resolution is being worked on as we speak, stay tuned. More details: www.alertready.ca/#alerts.

Update: Seems like that there is consensus on Twitter regarding this issue being a carrier issue....You need to give them some time to investigate.  I recommend following them on twitter


Update: It worked but it woke me up (iPhone 6S, on latest version and everything. I was even on WIFI Calling). I honestly forgot to screenshot the message but someone else posted it on Twitter.

Nope but CBC is reporting that a coding glitch prevented the alert from going out in Quebec.
Ontario here, no alert

Update: Seems like that there is consensus on Twitter regarding this issue being a carrier issue. It worked well for Rogers and there networks, but seems like a issue with Telus/Bell and their babies. But not to forget, there will be another test like this in September.

Hope it's fixed before there's a genuine issue.

Just got it too.  This time all in English, unlike the one yesterday, which was bilingual.  (I posted a screen shot yesterday in this thread)

Ontario, in a room with 120 people.... 2 phones sounded alert on the test day. If the phone is on silent (which i suspect most would be in a room of 120 people), then you will only get the notification on no alert sound.

No, I haven't. I am in BC@Dinh BC hasn't been tested yet.  Currently scheduled for May 9th at 1:55 PM.
No, I haven't. I am in BCI'm in Ontario on an S8 and received it as a push notification on my weather app. Unfortunatly there was no audio signal or vibration. Waited until my cable alert went off and the checked my phone. Saw the alert icon on the Weather Network app and had to open it to read. For all I knew the icon could have been a weather advisory and not an Alert notification.
No, I haven't. I am in BCNo alert here Nova Scotia on lg g6
Was one on t.v. nothing on my g6
No, I haven't. I am in BCThe alert was suppose to go off in Alberta and Saskatchewan today at 1:55pm. My phone number is Saskatchewan but I am currently in Alberta. I heard some phones go off while I was shopping but my phone did not!
No, I haven't. I am in BCMy understanding was that the "base" for your phone number is irrelevent. It matters your location. An alert for a disaster in Alberta would not be sent to you if you were visiting someone in Nova Scotia as you are not in the path of the danger.
