Telephone Exchanges Open for Competition by Province

You will find the exact name of your exchange by going to the CO code status web page. Choose your area code (e.g. 819) and then go down the list to the first three digits of your phone number (e.g. 819, 663). Close the link.

Then select your province from the list of exchanges that have been forborne from the regulation of local services. Check if the name of your exchange is there. If so, it confirms that your exchange is no longer regulated by the CRTC.
