Ontario Area Codes

Get a virtual number with a business phone system in any city across Ontario.

Ten Ontario area codes are currently being utilized. However, this is hardly surprising since the most numerous local numbers in all of Canada are Ontario local numbers. It can be attributed to the fact that Ontario is the second largest province in Canada with regards to land area as well as one of the most populated provinces. It is therefore natural for it to have the largest number of telephone numbers in operation. Having said that, Ontario currently uses 10 area codes to meet phone number demand. All the Ontario area codes are sporadically used with area code overlays within the province.

905, 807, 705, 647, 613, 519, 416, 343, 289, and 226 are the Ontario area codes. 226 is an area code that’s primarily used in the Southwestern Ontario region with 519 as the area code overlay. The Ontario local numbers in that region can have either of the 2 area codes. 289 is an area code that’s primarily used in the Niagara Peninsula, Oshawa, and Hamilton communities with 905 being the area code overlay. Area codes 647 and 416 are primarily used in the city of Toronto. Ontario area codes 613 and 343 are primarily used in Ottawa as well as the surrounding Eastern Ontario area. 705 is primarily used in most of Central and Northeastern Ohio. 807 is the area code used for Ontario numbers located in Northwestern Ontario. Area code 249 is primarily used as an overlay for 705 for supplementing the future needs of Ontario local numbers.

All these area codes are used in the 10-digit dialing system that Canada uses. With area codes as many as 10, callers in Ontario and those from other provinces in Canada will have a hard time calling people from Ontario. The reason for this is that the 10-digit dialing system requires callers to input the area code first before they dial the local Ontario number. The system is incredibly strict such that one mistake when dialing would connect the caller to a person that he/she doesn’t even know, which would be quite frustrating for the caller. If customers find such a system troublesome, you can just imagine what it can do to your business. Customers would be unable to reach you if they are unable to recall the appropriate area code of your business.

A minor problem such as clients being unable to reach your business any time they wish to do so may lead to complications that affect your business in the long run. Customers that don’t reach your business after trying calling several times would be discouraged to try once more and may prefer to engage the services of another company instead. Such a scenario would not be too good for your company. If you wish to avoid any complications or problems, it is advisable to invest in a business phone system that would not only have numbers that are easier to call but also encourages clients to get in touch with your business more often.
