New area code coming to Alberta

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.
