Canada’s parliament recognizes Englands Queen Elizabeth II as its queen and statutory head, while the Prime Minister serves are the chair of the Cabinet, and head of government.

The telephone was in invented in Brantford, Ontario, Canada in July 1874, by Alexander Graham Bell. That same year, the world’s first private lines (unswitched, point to point), and its subscribers were procured, leading to the rapid expansion and acceptance of the telephone franchise. In 1880 the National Bell Telephone Company was incorporated, through an act of Parliament, and was empowered to construct telephone lines over and along with all public properties and rights of way.

In this article, we highlight the List of Area codes in Canada and the regions that use said area codes. Apart from the 30 area codes, there are several hundred local exchange codes used by towns and districts in Canada. Most of this information is presented below.

204 and 431 are the Area codes for the province of Manitoba which is a territory of Canada. International callers it is necessary to add the prefix +1 before either 204 or 431 as assigned to the carrier of the particular user you may be attempting to call. Therefore your called number should look like +1(204) ******* or +1(431) ****** . Most calls to Manitoba have the 204 number, however, because it was one of the original numbers assigned to North American provinces of Canada in 1947, but was deemed overextended, and nearly exhausted in 2009, therefore, prompting the Canadian telephone authorities to add the 431 area code. The decision just to add another area code rather than just make a new one was to prevent users from the necessity of changing their numbers en masse.
