Manitoba to get 3rd area code
October 26, 2022
Manitoba will add a third area code (584) due to increased demand of mobile numbers.

According to Telecommunications Alliance: Starting October 29, the new 584 area code will be introduced in Manitoba in addition to 204 and 431.

There is increasing demand of mobile numbers in the region. 431 was implemented in 2012, only a span of ten years before this upcoming 584 addition. The new area code seeks to sustain more numbers in the future. Existing numbers will keep the same area code.
