On November 17, 2021, the Government of Canada will conduct an Alert Ready Test to compatible mobile devices in each province and territory. Alert Ready is designed to deliver critical and potentially life-saving alerts to Canadians. Test alerts educate Canadians on what an emergency alert will look and sound like in the event of a life-threatening situation.
The test message will be distributed on TV, radio and compatible wireless devices. The emergency alert will display on customers' devices, accompanied by the alert sound, unless your phone is set to vibrate, silent or turned off. However, not all wireless devices will receive the test message. This may occur for various reasons; device compatibility, connection to an LTE network, cell tower coverage, and device software and settings.
To learn more about the Alert Ready service, what devices are supported, and the test schedule for your province or territory, visit alertready.ca.

Yeah, I get these but I rarely get the Amber Alert ones, which is concerning as now that I live in the city where most come from, I don't get them. I didn't turn them off either. I think they are targeting regionally, but I don't use a VPN.
The official alerts are unrelated to VPN. They do not use an internet connection.
