Service Alert: Dialing area code 902 numbers after August 23, 2014

SERVICE(S) AFFECTED:                 Dialing area code 902 numbers

TIME OF OCCURRENCE:                 August 23, 2014

AFFECTED USERS:                        All

ESTIMATED RECOVERY:                 N/A



Starting August 23, 2014, all 10 digits will be necessary when dialing local numbers in the 902 calling area.

This is a result of the CRTC adding a new area code (782) to the Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island areas.

Please make sure you update any contact information to include 902 with the local number. This will include all printed and online materials.

This will not effect on-campus communications, therefore dialing 4-digit extensions will continue to work.

Please contact the Service Desk if you have any questions or concerns.
