Area Code 236 History:

06/01/2013
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. Area code 236 serves all of British Columbia.

Area code 672 has been approved as a distributed overlay of area codes 236, 250, 604, and 778 with an implementation date of 05/04/2019.

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.
