Area Code 236
(604 and 778 and 236) - (250 and 778 and 236)
Area Code 236 History:
Area code 236 was put into service as an overlay of area codes 250, 604, and 778 on 06/01/2013 and mandatory 10 digit dialing is required.
Ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) is necessary in the 604/778/236 and 250/778/236 overlays because two different homes in the same geographic area can have the same seven digit phone number but each would have a different area code.
