Announced earlier this year and scheduled for activation on May 15, 2021, a new area code 368 will be added to an already crowded overlay complex currently serving the province of Alberta, Canada. There are 4 active area codes today in Alberta: 403, 780, 587 and 825, the latter 2 covering the entire province. Area codes 403 and 780 serve different parts (south/north) of the province’s territory, with Calgary using 403 and Edmonton 780.
The new code is also to cover the entire Albertan territory. No changes will be required in the way calls are made with the introduction of this new area code.
