Alert Ready

The Weather Network has partnered with government agencies and Canada’s broadcasters to ensure you receive life-saving alerts the moment they’re issued.

Introducing Alert Ready, Canada's new emergency alert system.


Alert Ready is designed to deliver critical and potentially life-saving alerts to Canadians through television and radio. The Alert Ready system is developed in partnership with federal, provincial and territorial emergency management officials, Environment Canada and the broadcast industry to ensure you receive alerts immediately and know when to take action to keep yourself and your family safe.

When you hear an emergency alert, it’s time to act. Learn more at
