The demand for telecommunications services in Alberta continues to grow and a new area code has been added to ensure adequate availability of telephone numbers.
Alberta now has a total of five area codes, including 403, 587, 780, 825 and its most recent addition, 368.
Will this impact my service?
New customers in Alberta may be assigned this new area code.
For existing customers, this new area code has no impact to your services. Existing customers who already have a number with area codes 403, 587, 780 or 825 will keep the same number. You may begin to receive numbers starting with 368. The geographic boundaries that govern long distance will not change. Special numbers like 9-1-1 will still be dialed using 3 digits.
