Description:
Area code 902 is the telephone area code in the Canadian provinces of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, encompassing both provinces. The 902 area code was established in 1947 for all three Maritime provinces, with Newfoundland added shortly after it joined Canada; New Brunswick, along with Newfoundland, moved to area code 506 in 1955. Newfoundland subsequently received its own area code, 709, in early 1962.

902 remains the only North American area code shared by two provinces. (867 is shared by the three Canadian territories, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and Yukon; 809 was at one time shared between the Dominican Republic and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.)

The incumbent local exchange carrier in 902 is Bell Aliant (now part of the Bell Aliant income trust), which was produced from a merger that included Island Telecom (formerly Island Tel) and Maritime Telephone and Telegraph (MT&T).

In 2005, the 902 telephone market was the most competitive telephone exchange in North America when EastLink became the first cable company to offer local telephone service over a fiber optic network in North America in 1999.
