Area Code Update: Eastern Ontario, Canada
Jan. 29, 2009 (Vol. 30, No. 3)
The North American Numbering Plan Administration (NANPA) has announced a new overlay for the 613 area code in Eastern Ontario, Canada.
An NPA is exhausted when all the available NXXs in that area code are assigned.
A “split” occurs when a portion of numbers in an existing area code are assigned a new area code. An “overlay” is an addition to an existing area code in the same geographic region. “Permissive dialing” – when both the old and new area codes are active – is possible between the effective date and the mandatory date.
