Get those dialing fingers and memory banks ready. It’s time to memorize a new area code.

825 will join Alberta’s current area codes of 587, 403, and 780 starting Saturday, April 9, said the Western Telecommunications Alliance in a press release. Beginning then, customers signing up for new numbers or service may be assigned to 825 area code as almost 7 million numbers are opened up to meet with demand.

Current numbers will not be affected nor will numbers for long distance and three digit numbers such as 211, 311, 411, 611 and 911.

For more information on the new area codes contact your phone provider, or visit the New Area Codes website.
