Area code 450


Area code 450

Area code 450 is a telephone area code in the Canadian province of Quebec, encompassing the off-island suburbs of Montreal (which is the area code 514 and now 438). The area code is also shared by several small communities in an adjacent part of Ontario: some landline customers in Chute-à-Blondeau (East Hawkesbury), near Pointe-Fortune have 450-451-xxxx numbers from the Rigaud phone exchange.

The cities served by area code 450 are Longueuil and Laval.

The communities of Roussillon, Joliette, Saint-Hyacinthe, Granby, Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu and Vaudreuil-Dorion are also part of this area code.

Since its introduction, area code 450 has been associated with various stereotypes of Suburbia, mainly by residents of the 514 area.Fact|date=October 2007 This distinction between urbanites and suburbanites is reinforced by the fact that Montreal is an island, making the presumed cultural divide as clear as the geographical separation. The stereotype of the "450" is now widely known across Quebec thanks, in part, to its extensive use by several comedy television shows, such as "450, Chemin du Golf".

The main incumbent local exchange carrier in 450 is Bell Canada, plus some independent companies.
