Area Code 683 History:
Area code 683 was put into service as an all services overlay covering the two existing area code overlays (249 and 705). Ten digit dialing is already necessary in the existing 249 and 705 overlay and this will be extended to area code 683.
Ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) is necessary in the 249/683/705 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.
Area code 683, 705 and 249 cover portions of northeastern and central Ontario, including the larger communities of Barrie, Bracebridge, Collingwood, Greater Sudbury, Haliburton, Hearst, Huntsville, Lindsay, Midland, North Bay, Orillia, Peterborough, Sault Ste. Marie, Timmins, and Temiskaming Shores in addition to many smaller communities within the service area.
