You dont have to.

But if a local Ottawa friend may want to call you and if they dont have Canada wide long distance that might annoy them and cost them money

Though the area code may still be the same, there is a difference and will be considered long distance as in the case Dennis described. Your friends will probably avoid calling you to avoid long distance charges

Actually I made a mistake...I have the Canada wide long distance so there should be no problem.

The above comments still apply Jacquie. It may cost your new local friends money to call you while your old friends can call you like they did before.
