Alberta Area Code Overlays
(403 and 587 and 825) - (780 and 587 and 825)


Alberta is currently using four area codes. Alberta has had two area code splits and two area code overlay plans, often called an overlay complex.

Area code 403 originally covered not only Alberta but also Yukon and parts of the Northwest Territories. In 1997 area code 403 was split, along with area code 819, to form area code 867 which covers Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut. In 1999 area code 403 was split again to form area code 780. In 2008 area code 587 was put into service as an area code overlay of area codes 403 and 780. In 2016 area code 825 was put into service as an overlay of area codes 403, 780, and 587.

Today area code 403 covers the southern portions of Alberta including Calgary, Airdrie, Banff, Brooks, Canmore, Claresholm, Crowsnest Pass, High River, Medicine Hat, Olds, Lethbridge, Red Deer, Rocky Mountain House and Strathmore. Area code 780 covers the northern portions of Alberta including Edmonton, Bonnyville, Camrose, Drayton Valley, Fort McMurray, Fort Saskatchewan, Grande Prairie, Jasper, Lloydminster (Alberta portion), Peace River, Saint Albert, Sherwood Park, and Wetaskiwin. Area codes 587 and 825 overlay the entire province.
