Area Code 431

The new area code will be 431.

  Area Code 431

At present 204 is the North American telephone area code for the Canadian province of Manitoba.
In 2009 the Canadian Numbering Administrator forecast that the numbers for area code 204 in Manitoba would be exhausted within a few years. In July, 2010, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission approved a province-wide overlay with area code 431, for implementation in November 2012

Manitobans who love the 204 might have to get used to the new dial tone of the 431.

The introduction of the new 431 area code is to prevent running out of telephone numbers in Manitoba, but existing customers will be able to keep their current area code and number.

The Canadian Numbering Administrator's notification had reported that Manitoba is expected to run out of telephone numbers in the 204 range by May 2013.
