To meet the growing demand for telecommunications services and numbers in Manitoba, a new area code will be introduced in October 2022.
The area code 584 will be introduced and exist within the 204/431 geographic area in Manitoba.
There will be no change to customers’ existing telephone numbers in the 204 and 431 areas, and existing numbers are not changed in any way.
- Telephone numbers beginning with the new area code 584 may begin to be assigned to customers’ new telephone lines starting on October 29, 2022.
10 digit dialing will continue to be used for all local calls within the area served by these area codes: to complete all local calls, you will need to dial the area code plus the telephone number.
Local and long distance calling areas and prices will not change with the adoption of the new area code 584. Customers with telephone numbers in the new area code 584 will get the same calling areas as customers in the same exchange areas with telephone numbers in area code 204 and 431.
N11 service access codes such as emergency calls (911), directory assistance (411), repair (611) and relay service (711) will continue to be dialed using 3 digits.
