The fate of the few remaining N11 numbers is generating a lot of interest and controversy in Canada. The CRTC is in the midst of studying what it should do with its unassigned 211, 311, 811 and 511 codes. An application headed by the United Way wants 211 used as a referral service for various social and health questions. The Canadian National Institute for the Blind also wants its own three-digit code.
