New telephone area codes coming to Quebec

Starting on Oct. 22, 2022, three additional area codes will be introduced in Québec.

The regions currently covered by area codes 819 and 873 will see the arrival of the additional 468 code, while the new 354 code will be added in the regions currently served by area codes 450 and 579 in the area surrounding Montreal. In Montreal itself, phone numbers will also start with the 263 area code in addition to existing codes 514 and 438

The introduction of these new area codes is the result of decisions by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) in order to meet the continuously growing demand for new telephone numbers.
