819 Area: Northern, Central and Western Québec
Starting September 15, 2012, the new 873 area code has been gradually introduced in the 819 region. However, numbers with the current area code will continue to be assigned until there are none left.
You live in the 819 area?
For your local calls, you will always enter 10 digits (area code + local number)

You have a number in the 819 area?
Anyone who already has a number with the current area code 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.
