At the end of October 2022, Manitobans will have to remember a third area code for local calls. 

On September 18, 2020, the Canadian Numbering Administrator (CNA) said that Manitoba's two area codes, 204/431 would last for all new numbers in the province until June, 2024. 

Just under a year later, in August 2021 the CNA published the Relief Numbering Resource Utilization Forecast (R-NRUF), which showed that at the rate of numbers being taken for new cell phones, 204/431 would be exhausted by October, 2023. 

Therefore, two years ahead of the original schedule the CNA have announced that a third area code will be available for the rising demand for phone numbers, with area code 584.
