Hamilton area getting new area code in March

Hamilton Mountain News

Get ready to start seeing numbers with the 365 area code.

The new area code is being introduced Mrch 25 in the region currently served by the 289 and 905 prefixes.

The move is part of a "code relief" decision made by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission in 2010 to deal with the continuously growing regional demand for new telephone numbers.

At the time, the CRTC said it had to move the date up to March 25, 2013 from the original October 2015 date because it foresaw that numbers in the 289 and 905 area codes would be exhausted by March 2014 instead of October 2016.
