Canada recently had several new area codes added in order to meet the growing demand driven by a growing population and boom in the wireless industry. Area codes were first introduced to Canada as part of the North American Numbering Plan (NANP) in 1947, in order for people to make long-distance calls themselves instead of needing an operator. Here is a list of all the numbers, their date of creation and from where they were split.
The area code is followed by another three numbers, referred to as Central Office Codes (CO codes), which also must start with a number between two and nine.
When number prefixes (the area code + CO code) run out, there is a need for a new area code.


Glenn Pilley, director of the Canadian Numbering Association, said that from about 1960 to 1990, there were no new area code numbers needed in Canada. In 1947, AT&T chose the easiest and shortest number combination (212) when dialing from a rotary phone for New York City.
Dealing out numbers now is a complicated mathematical process, involving the creation of a complex 11-page spreadsheet that is fed a mathematical formula. Currently the NANP is doing everything it can to conserve and optimize the numbers in use in order to put off that inevitable fact. The plan was either to add another digit to area codes, making them four digits, which would then take the possible numbers within each area code from 750 to 7,500.


According to Pilley, some have advised both changes be made at once, making 10-digit phone numbers into 12-digit numbers.
Manitoba will get a new number in November and British Columbia will get one more sometime in 2014.
Another easy and priority number was given to Washington, but Pilley assures that the rest of the numbers were randomly given out.
