Prince Edward Island Area Codes


Prince Edward Island Area Code Overlays
(902 and 782)


Prince Edward Island is currently using two area codes. Prince Edward Island utilizes an area code overlay plan which consists of area code 782 as an overlay of area code 902.. Area codes 902 and 782 cover the entire province of Prince Edward Island. Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia both use area codes 902 and 782.

When area code 902 was established in 1947 it served the three provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. Newfoundland and Labrador were added in 1949 when they joined Canada. In 1955 area code 902 was split to form area code 506 which was assigned to New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador. Area code 902 then served Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia exclusively.
