New area code launches today

Starting today there is a new area code in the province.

879 has been introduced and will coexist with the current 709 area code. The introduction of this new area code is in response to the increasing demand for phone numbers in the region.

Residents and businesses requesting a new phone number may receive one with the new area code.

Existing numbers will keep the same area code and local calling areas remain the same. All local calls will require 10 digits.
