Top 5 Canada Toll Free Number Providers

Canada Toll Free Number Providers

AVOXI takes a look at the top Canada Toll Free Number providers to offer you a comparison of prices, features, and package bundles.

Advantages of a Canada Toll Free Number

American and Canadian businesses often overlap—and luckily, so do their toll free numbers. This means that it is easy for you to expand your business without establishing a physical presence in the area. You remain accessible to your current customers and gain accessibility to prospective customers. Because both countries are part of the North American Numbering Plan, the dialing structures and the prefixes are exactly the same.

The biggest advantage of having a Canada toll free number is that the same number works for both US and Canadian callers. That promotes clarity and consistency as you market your business. And, like US toll free numbers, Canada toll free numbers start with one of the following prefixes: 800, 833, 844, 855, 866, 877, or 888. Seven numerical digits follow the prefix numbers in a format just like the US numbers.
