France changed a few years ago. I know that 19 is not used anymore. I do
not remember if it is 00 as I personally use Canada Direct all the time
when I am there, but I believe it is.

In Canada or the US, it is 011 for a direct call, 01 for an automated
calling-card-driven call. I use both all the time, depending whether I am
at home/office [direct, 011] or not. 01 allows to charge the call to a
third party. The voice menu in Canada drives the operation (you have a
choice of language first then instructions).
