NEW AREA CODE FOR SOUTHWESTERN ONTARIO

  There will soon be a new area code in southwestern ontario.

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has announced that by June 2015 they will be introducing a third area code - "548" - on top of the existing "519" and "226"

The Canadian Numbering Administrator had originally told the CRTC that 226 and 519 area codes were to run out by September 2015.

The original "519" area code was introduced in 1953 and the "226" code was added in October 2006.
