For Montreal, the 263 area code will join the existing codes, i.e. 514 and 438. In the suburbs of Montreal, 354 will appear, which will be added to 450 and 579.

In western Quebec, the 819 and 873 regions will also use a new prefix, 468.

These indicators can be distributed today to new consumers and businesses.

A code allows at least 7 million telephone numbers.
