Area code 306 is the telephone area code in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan, encompassing the province. It is one of the original 86 area codes assigned in 1947, in the contiguous United States and the then-nine-province extent of Canada.

The incumbent local exchange carrier in 306 is SaskTel.

Saskatchewan's second area code, 639, [1][2][3] was introduced in 2013, and is an overlay of 306.[4] 10-digit-dialing began in 2012 and became mandatory with the introduction of the new area code in May, 2013. It was decided to implement the new area code as an overlay rather than a split in order to spare residents and businesses in rural Saskatchewan the burden of changing their numbers.
