Toll-free numbers

Canada is a very large country, and it can be expensive to make calls from one city to another. Many businesses and government departments use telephone numbers that start with 1-800, 1-888, or 1-877. This lets you call them for free, within a province, or within Canada. These are known as toll-free numbers. Simply dial the 1-800, 1-888, or 1-877 number exactly as listed.
