Newfoundland Area Codes

709 - St. Johns Area Code

On its early years, Newfoundland area code used to be 902, sharing it with four other provinces. In the middle of the 1950’s, the original area code was separated unto two, with area code 709 assigned as the Newfoundland area code. Currently, Newfoundland is in use of one area code that is also being used by Labrador, its neighboring province. Though there are two provinces that utilize the Newfoundland area code, it still has a considerable amount of available numbers that can accommodate new phone users. This means that Newfoundland numbers will still be using the same Newfoundland area code that has been in use since the split.

Since Newfoundland is in Canada, calling Newfoundland numbers would require one to dial 10-digit numbers. 10-digit dialing system is the official way of placing a call to Canada. All calls, including Newfoundland local numbers, use this system. The distinct disadvantage of this system is that local callers must dial the Newfoundland area code together with the Newfoundland local numbers to connect a call. This method of placing a local call differs from the US, where you are only required to dial 7 digits.

Businesses are the ones that are directly affected by this way of dialing. Before, their clients would only need to dial 7 digits. Now, they must add the Newfoundland area code. This gives inconvenience to customers, for they are the ones that must familiarize with the incorporation of an area code to the Newfoundland local numbers. As a result, some customers might tend to lose interest in calling just because they only remember your company’s Newfoundland local number and not your area code. Incidents such as this might result in lost customers and sales generated from them. A simple technicality in number dialing can affect the development of your business.
