some people have been trying to contact me and I now found out after 3 months that some people need to include a 1 before they dial, 1 289 456 xxxx. I didn’t know this until now. Even people in my city need to do this.
is there a way to make it so they don’t need to include the 1? Do I have to change my phone number? All this time I’ve been giving my info out without the included 1 at the start.

If someone call you, then it depends on the carrier of the caller or their phone. Koodo cannot change it and changing your number doesn’t make any sense unless you want your number to be a local number so people without long distance plan can call you without any charges.
Also, smart phones can automatically add the +1 in front of the number when dialing. Most phones can do it. I also only gave out my number without +1 and haven't got any issue yet.
