New Area Code 672
A new area code – “672” is coming to British Columbia (BC) on May 4, 2019. The new area code will be added to the list of codes for the region: 236, 250, 604, and 778.
Existing customers’ phone numbers will not be impacted. After May 4, 2019, area code “672” will start to be assigned by providers.
The addition of “672” will not change the 10-digit dialing process in place. Callers will still need to dial the area code plus the seven-digit phone number for local calls, and for long distance callers will still need to dial “1” plus the area code and seven-digit phone number.
