- Manitoba Government
Recently, the Manitoba Telephone Systems announced that a new area code was required for Manitoba and they have said in 2012 it will be 431.
This does not make any sense - Manitobans are used to 204 and there is no one else using an area code close - so why can't the new Area Code start with a 2?
Please support this petition to have the Area Code start with a 2 so that it resembles the code in use already. Look how long it took to get used to Alberta having 403 and 780, it's still confusing.
Please support this petition to the Manitoba Government to request that the new Manitoba Area Code start with a 2.
