The sources appear to contradict on the question of which toll-free InWATS exchanges were assigned to Canada; the 2600 magazine piece has +1-800-NN7 while the AT&T routing guides have most of the 1-800-N61-, 1-800-N63-, 1-800-N65- and 1-800-N67- prefixes assigned to overlay the individual geographic Canadian area codes. Certainly 1-800-NN2 is entirely absent from interstate or interprovincial lists in the routing guide, so it being US intrastate is plausible. Odds are, the initial US interstate 800 exchanges were 800-N2X, 800-N3X, 800-N4X, 800-N5X with Canada 800-N6X, but as additional points were added (like Hawaii) or second/additional freephone exchanges were added to serve popular geographic area codes, the pattern was broken?
