Canadian SIM (Fido & Rogers)

Earlier, the international student and immigrants has to visit the telecom operator's shop to get a new sim card after arriving in Canada. There, they have to submit the documents like a copy of their Passport, Canadian visa, etc. and sign some documents physically to get the sim activated. Then, the operator activated the sim card after a few hours. Many telecom operators still follow this method in Canada. The students have to wait 2-3 days before connecting with their parents or borrow someone's phone to update their parents about the journey.

To resolve the tedious problem, Fido & Rogers, in collaboration with Canadian SIM, launched a SIM card. The physical sim card is delivered to the student's address in India along with a phone number and activated immediately upon arrival of the Student in Canada. So they don't need to wait 2-3 days before connecting with their loved ones. They can start calling their family members as soon as they land in Canada from their mobile phone.

Fido's plan costs $35 monthly and Roger's have a plan starting $40 monthly. It comes with 75GB/100GB of monthly data, unlimited calling Canada-wide, and unlimited local and Canada-wide text messages. The sim card is free to apply for, and you don't have to pay a single penny until your first bill. The sim card includes 1000 minutes of talk time to India & some selected countries such as Bangladesh, China (including HongKong), Mexico and United Kingdom as a limited-time offer. This plan is available for purchase worldwide outside of Canada. If you buy a similar scheme in Canada, it will cost $44 monthly for 30GB Internet data and an extra $5 for International calling. Thus, this is the best Canadian SIM card for International Students, Work Permit Holders and Permanent Residents.
