Information on the new area codes

Learn about these new area codes and view frequently asked questions.

As demand for telecommunications services continues to grow, new area codes will be added to ensure adequate availability of telephone numbers. The geographic region currently covered by area codes will see the addition of a code.

Note:

  • The new area codes will only be assigned to new telephone numbers

  • Anyone who already has a number will retain their existing number

  • The geographic boundaries that govern long distances will not change

  • Special numbers like 9-1-1 will still be dialed using 3 digits

  • For your local calls, you will continue to dial 10 digits (area code + local number)
