How to Buy a Sim Card in Canada?
Sim Cards of different companies are available at various places in Canada. First of all, you can buy it at the airport as soon as you arrive.
But in my opinion, it is not a great choice to buy a sim card at the airport because there very limited plans are offered. It is better to visit their official retail stores.
You can now also get the sim cards from bigger gas stations, and stores like 7Eleven, Dollarama. Remember! You need to bring your passport in order to buy and register a prepaid sim.
