Starting April 23, 2022, area code 368 will be added in areas currently served by codes 403, 587, 780 and 825.
The province of Alberta will be adding a new area code in 2022, which will cover the whole province.
The new area code is from a decision made from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), looking to meet a growing demand for new phone numbers in the province.
The new area code will slowly introduced across the province starting in April. After that time, those requesting a new phone number may receive one with the new area code.
Numbers with a 368 area code will only be assigned to customers once there is no longer sufficient supply of numbers with existing area codes.
