Expansion of the Nouvelle-Beauce local calling area
Information on the expansion of the Nouvelle-Beauce calling area
This change may affect the programming of certain items of your equipment that require programming, including the requirement to dial 1 to make a long-distance call.
We recommend that you check and reprogram all equipment (if applicable) any time after November 5 to avoid disrupting operations.
We appreciate your making this change if you are using your own equipment or programming.
If you have a line or telephone equipment programmed by TELUS with the requirement to dial 1, you can contact TELUS for reprogramming assistance.
The following municipalities will be affected by this change:
The Municipality of Frampton
The Municipality of Saint-Lambert-de-Lauzon
The Municipality of Sainte-Hénédine
The Municipality of Saint-Bernard
The Municipality of Saint-Elzéar
The Municipality of Scott
The Municipality of Sainte-Marguerite
The Municipality of Saints-Anges
The Municipality of Saint-lsidore
Please note the following:
Special numbers like 9-1-1 will still be dialled using 3 digits.
For local calls, you will continue to dial 10 digits (area code + local number).
For long-distance calls, you will continue to dial 1 before the 10 digits (area code + local number).
Frequently asked questions
Will local calling areas remain the same?
No. The expansion of this local calling area will allow you to call a number of additional exchanges as a local service instead of a long-distance service.
Is it common to add new areas to the local calling area?
No. However, TELUS is committed to responding to its customers’ needs and expectations as much as possible. This is why TELUS has decided to act in response to the request from your municipalities and the Chambre de commerce et d’industrie Nouvelle-Beauce.
