Some background on Quebec and its area codes

Quebec, Canada's largest province by area, initially utilized area code 514 when area codes were introduced in 1947. As demand increased, particularly in Montreal, the area was split, introducing area code 418 in 1957 for the regions outside Montreal. Area code 819 was added in 1959 to cover western Quebec, including the capital, Quebec City.

Over time, Quebec's continued population and telecommunication growth necessitated further expansions. Area code 450 was introduced in 1998, surrounding Montreal to handle overflow. Subsequent additions include 579 and 438, serving as overlays to 450 and 514 respectively, to manage the increasing number of devices and services requiring phone numbers.

The introduction of area code 367 in Quebec in 2018 as an overlay for 418 and 581 marks the latest development in Quebec's area code evolution. This expansion reflects ongoing changes in telecommunication, driven by growing demand for phone numbers due to population growth, business expansion, and the proliferation of cellular devices.
