I know Canadian phone numbers are exactly the same as in the US - 3 digit code, followed by 7 digit phone number. For example, 212-555-1234. What I'm curious about is the history of why and how both the US and Canada have the same phone number allocation. The two countries have very different mailing address designations (imo, the US has one of the shortest mailing addresses in the world) but the phone numbering is the same. Why? How? Link to comment
