Area Code 428
Area Code 428 History:
Not yet in service.
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has approved area code 428 as a distributed overlay of area code 506 with a revised implementation date of April 29, 2023. Previously the implementation date was 11/21/2020.
Ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) will be necessary in the 428/506 overlay because different homes in the same geographic area can have the same seven digit phone number but each would have a different area code.
Major cities or places in New Brunswick within area code 428 include:
Area code 428 will serve the larger communities of Bathurst, Campbellton, Edmundston, Florenceville, Fredericton, Grand Falls, Miramichi, Moncton, Saint John, Sait Stephen, and Woodstock, in addition to many smaller communities throughout New Brunswick.
