Dial 584 for Manitoba

phoneNew phone numbers in Manitoba with the area code 584 became available on Saturday, October 29, 2022. The new area code is the third for the province, joining area codes 204 and 431.

The decision of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to add the new area code, announced last March, was intended to meet the continuously growing demand for new telephone numbers.

Back in 2020, the Canadian Numbering Administrator (CNA) advised the CRTC that Manitoba would likely exhaust all phone numbers using the area codes 204 and 431 by June 2024, but then advanced their estimate this past summer to December 2023, which the CRTC said would put Manitoba “into a jeopardy condition.”
