Area Code 672
(604 and 778 and 236 and 672) - (250 and 778 and 236 and 672)
Area Code 672 History:
The Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) approved area code 672 as a distributed overlay of area codes 236, 250, 604, and 778 and was implemented on 05/04/2019. Ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) is already necessary in the 236/250/604/778 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.
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has approved area code 257 as a distributed overlay covering existing area codes 236, 250, 604, 672 and 778 effective 05/24/2025.
