204 area: Manitoba
Starting in November 2012, the new 431 area code has been gradually introduced in Manitoba. However, numbers with the current area code 204 will continue to be assigned until there are none left.
Do you live in Manitoba?
For your local calls, you will always enter 10 digits (area code + local number).
The 9-1-1 emergency number, where available, remains a three-digit number.
Do you have a number in the 204 area code?
Anyone who already has a number with area code 204 will keep the same number.
Introducing a new area code within a region already served by another code creates only minor changes. Adding an area code using the overlay method does not cause any numbers to change for current customers. And local calling areas also remain the same.
- Only new telephone lines are affected by this addition.
- Existing numbers keep the same area code and are not changed in any way.
- Local calling areas remain the same.
- The 9-1-1 emergency number remains a three-digit number throughout the area.
