Area Code 879 History:

Note yet in service.

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has approved area code 879 as an all services overlay of area code 709. The original implementation date of 11/24/2018 has been postponed by the Commission (CRTC) and a new implementation date is being reviewed. When area code 709 is placed into service 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.
