Phone Number Format in Canada


What is the Phone Number Format in Canada?




Most phone numbers in Canada are written in the following formats:

   Prefix: long distance or international
   |   Carrier or area code 
   |   --------------------
   |   |   Subscriber number
   |   |   -----------------
   v   v   v
       AAA SSS-SSSS     - Local format
  +1   AAA SSS-SSSS     - International format

Most telephone numbers in Canada have 10 digits and are written in the format of "AAA SSS-SSSS". Here are some examples: 416 247-7678; 604 207-7077.

When dialing locally inside Canada, dial the phone number directly as "AAA SSS-SSSS". Long distance prefix is not needed.

When dialing from outside of Canada, the international dial-in prefix "+1" is required. So the format becomes "+1 AAA SSS-SSSS".

When dialing from Canada to other countries, the international dail-out prefix "+" or "011" required.
