Area codes

The NCR uses the area codes 613 and 343 on the Ontario side of the Ottawa River, and 819 for the Quebec side. A new area code, 873 overlaying area code 819 on the Quebec side, is set to begin operating in 2012.

Although located in different area codes, Ottawa and Gatineau have local dialing with each other. Previously, the two cities had exchange protection in place, meaning that a local exchange code in Ottawa could not also be assigned in Gatineau, although this is no longer the case as ten-digit local dialing has been in place since 2006.
