How to Fax Canada

Fax to Canada

It is easy to send a fax to Canada from the United States — the two telephone networks are interconnected directly. You may not even need to dial the international calling prefix of “011” first.

Note: although dialing Canada may not “feel” like an international call, long-distance rates are still expensive! Consider sending your fax through email instead.

Simply dial:

1 – (the Canadian number you want to fax including area code)

The country code for Canada is the same as the U.S.:  ” 1 “

If you do not connect, dial the IDD code “011” before the country code for Canada and your number.

Example: 011-1-[number in Canada]

Check the list of city and area codes for Canada.

Be sure to prefix with a “9” if you normally need one to access a line outside of your company’s phone switch.

It may be necessary to insert a pause in your dialing sequence after the “011” to allow the phone network time to connect you to an exchange. This differs by model and make of machine, but may be a comma or “#” sign inserted into the number.

If you receive a bad connection or the fax does not begin transfer, try reducing the baud rate on your machine to ensure a noise free connection.
