Area Code 709
Area Code 709 History:
Area code 709 was officially put into service. Area code 709 was created from a split of area code 506. Area code 709 serves the entire province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Area code 879 has been approved as an all services overlay of area code 709, however, the implementation date has been delayed indefinitely. Ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) will be necessary in the 709/879 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 Newfoundland and Labrador within area code 709 include:
Area code 709 serves the larger communities of Bay Roberts, Carbonear, Clarenville, Conception Bay South, Corner Brook, Gander, Grand Falls-Windsor, Labrador City, St. John's, Stephenville and Twillingate in addition to many smaller communities throughout Newfoundland and Labrador.
