- Target Lead Time
The target lead time is Environment Canada’s service goal for the timeliness of alerts. The target lead time is intended to provide enough time for the public to take appropriate action when alerted of a predicted event. Other factors, such as the predictability of an event, and the ability of the public and media to receive notice of the message, may influence the actual lead times provided.
