History of Area Code 778 in Canada

Vancouver area code 778 is an overlay of the 250 and 604 area codes. 778 was introduced on November 3, 2001, as the third phone code in British Columbia, Canada, to help alleviate the increase in demand for new phone numbers. With 778 came the introduction of 10-digit dialing in the Greater Vancouver area.

Initially, 778 served only the Vancouver area and the lower Fraser Valley. However, in 2007, it expanded to cover the entire BC province, overlapping with the 604 and 250 area codes. 604 serves the area north of Metro Vancouver to Whistler, while 250 serves areas outside of Metro Vancouver. Today, 778 is a widely recognized and utilized phone code throughout British Columbia.

Why Start a Business in the Vancouver Phone Area Code 778?

British Columbia has eight distinct economic regions: Cariboo, Vancouver Island and Coast, Thompson-Okanagan, Northeast, North Coast, Nechako, Lower Mainland/Southwest, and Kootenay. Each region offers unique advantages across various sectors, making it a prime location for starting or expanding a business. Key industry sectors on the west coast of BC are Aerospace, Agriculture, AI, ICT, Clean Tech, and Forestry.

The province saw a 1.6% GDP growth in 2023, close to top-performing provinces like Ontario and Saskatchewan. Brands like Slack, Hootsuite, and Lululemon have initial roots in British Columbia, highlighting the region’s innovation and business success.  

BC is located on North America’s west coast and falls under the Pacific time zone, making it easy to communicate with international markets like New York, London, and Hong Kong within the same business day. These factors make British Columbia an attractive place for entrepreneurs and businesses.
