As a reminder, to enable the 9-8-8 mental health crisis number nationwide, 10-digit dialing will be implemented in Newfoundland on May 31st, 2023. 10-digit dialing will be mandatory for both local and long-distance calling.

This may affect the operation of equipment with pre-programmed numbers, including home security systems, lifeline equipment and other wireless devices.

We highly recommend updating the numbers programmed into these devices to include the full 10-digit phone numbers prior to April 4th, 2023 to ensure they continue to function properly. Special numbers such as 9-1-1 will still be dialed using 3 digits.

For more information, please chat with us or visit

Success! Message received.

October 28, 2021 - Update!

Digital Government and Service NL (DGSNL) is looking for feedback on possible changes to the Lottery Licensing Regulations, which regulate charitable gaming in Newfoundland and Labrador. These types of lotteries include bingo, ticket sales, games of chance, sports lotteries, break-open lotteries and Monte Carlo lotteries that are for charitable or religious purposes.


While we recognize that municipalities are not eligible for a charitable lottery license, there are organizations within the community that have done so. To assist in providing all organizations, and community members, an opportunity to participate in the consultations, we are asking municipalities to post a link to the questionnaire on their website.
