(ADD)-THE-CODE is a public service dot com for residents of the Greater Toronto Area.

In order to accomidate the rapid number of telephone numbers being provisioned for the 416 and 905 area codes, two more area codes have been granted by the CRTC.

Starting January 8, 2001 users of twisted pair in the area will be required to dial ten digits regardless of where they are calling from or to.

647 and 289 will be the new area codes dividing 416 and 905 respectively and this change is bound to cause chaos among the elderly and those of us who still use Microsoft Fax.

The final date to master the habit of recalling a ten digit telephone number is April 7, 2001. More information is available from addthecode.com or your local telephone company.
