This test "provides an opportunity for stakeholders to validate and improve the system's performance and reliability to ensure it operates as intended in the event of a life-threatening situation."
Emergency alert test alarm time
The alarm will go off at different times depending on the province you find yourself in.
For us Quebecers, it's scheduled for 1:55 p.m. (EST).
That should be around the time you're either preparing for an afternoon nap, already dosing off while working from home, or when you've finally cracked and decided to order yourself UberEats for lunch.
Regardless of what you'll be doing at that moment, consider this your warning that an unpleasant alarm is coming your way today!
