Some background on Alberta and its area codes

Alberta, a Canadian province known for its vast prairies and mountainous regions, originally had only one area code, 403, introduced in 1947. As the population grew, particularly in major cities like Calgary and Edmonton, the demand for more telephone numbers increased, leading to the introduction of additional area codes.

In 1999, the area code 780 was introduced for the northern half of Alberta, including Edmonton, while the southern region retained 403. This division helped manage the rising volume of telecommunication needs and business expansions, ensuring a stable and sufficient number supply for the area.

By 2008, Alberta introduced a new area code, 587, as an overlay for the entire province, accommodating further growth in both personal and commercial telecommunications. This overlay system allowed existing numbers to remain unchanged while providing flexibility for issuing new numbers without geographic constraints, demonstrating adaptability to continuous population and technology shifts.
