Technical info on Canadian phone numbers
- Country code:
- Canada's country code is +1, the same as the United States and other countries within the NANP.
- Area codes:
- Canadian phone numbers consist of a three-digit area code, which is used to identify a specific geographic region within the country. There are multiple area codes for each province, and they are often assigned based on population density.
- Local numbers:
- After the area code, there is a seven-digit local phone number, which is typically formatted as XXX-XXXX.
- Number format:
- A Canadian phone number is generally written as (AAA) BBB-CCCC or AAA-BBB-CCCC, where AAA is the area code, BBB is the first three digits of the local number (the exchange code), and CCCC is the last four digits of the local number (the line number).
- Ten-digit dialing:
- Most of Canada requires ten-digit dialing for local calls, meaning you must include the area code even when calling within the same area code.
- Toll-free numbers:
- Canadian toll-free numbers start with the area codes 800, 888, 877, 866, 855, 844, or 833. These numbers can be dialed without incurring long-distance charges, but they are not always accessible from outside of Canada and the United States.
- Long-distance calls:
- To make a long-distance call within Canada, you typically need to dial "1" before the area code, followed by the seven-digit local number. However, this may vary depending on your service provider and calling plan.
- International calls:
- To call a Canadian number from outside of the NANP, you will need to dial your country's exit code, followed by Canada's country code (+1), the area code, and the local number.
- Wasn't the internet supposed to make phone calls more affordable?
- FlyNumber works great if you just launched a start-up and you're on a shoestring budget
