Canada Prepaid SIM Card

You've just met the man of your dreams and he is taking you out for dinner to a nice restaurant overlooking Lake Ontario. Over dinner you ask him what he does for a living.

"I'm a Royal Canadian Mountie," he says.

You think to yourself: "I just have to call mom - she'll never believe this!"

For those times when you just need to get in touch with someone in Canada or back home, prepaid SIM cards offer you the benefits of using your own phone at local rates. Simply replace your SIM card with a prepaid Canada SIM card and you will be set up to make all those important phone calls and send quick messages across the world, without paying excessively high roaming costs.

What our partner Telestial says

A prepaid Canada SIM card with an international cell phone is the most convenient and economical solution for staying in touch while in Canada. Pay the local rate for local calls and use a cellular phone in Canada like you do at home. And unlike home, your Canada SIM card and cell phone service is prepaid so there is no need for a contract.

The SIM Card for Canada includes:

  • $26.00 ($10 CAD) starter airtime credit
  • A local cell phone number in Canada
  • Voicemail
  • SMS (text messaging), e-mail
  • No yearly contract, monthly charges or credit check

Please Note: Your Canada SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM 1900 compatible international cell phone. If you do not have your own international cell phone, Telestial has several compatible models available for your review and consideration.

Global SIM Cards

Both Telestial and ekit offer a range of region specific and global SIM cards. Starting at just US$ 9 (with credit included!), these cards represent good value for travellers interested in having only one SIM card and phone number to cover multiple countries, whilst keeping roaming charges in check.

Canada Calling Card

For those not interested in travelling with a mobile, calling cards are a great way to call home cheaply. Consider these benefits:

  • Save up to 70% on international calls
  • Make calls from over 150 countries worldwide
  • No sign-up or monthly fees
  • Toll-free access numbers
  • Pay in advance or pay later
  • And much more...

We've compared two popular calling cards to illustrate some benefits. Visit the International Calling Cards page for details. Or visit both providers directly to compare for yourself.
