Buying Sim Card

Just Moved In

Dear Sir or Madam,



I am Hamed Moradian, an international university student at UCW. My wife and I are arriving in Vancouver in December 2023. My university begins in January 2024.


After I arrive, I would like to buy SIM cards and a phone for my wife.

Would you please help me with how to do this and what plans are available for university students and newcomers?


I am looking forward to hearing from you.


Yours Faithfully

Hamed Mordain

Your best option is to go to a retail outlet once you arrive, to get set up. They can provide all the info you need. You will need your passport(s) and possibly your student visa.

Start by researching the major mobile service providers in Vancouver. Some of the popular ones include Rogers, Telus, and Bell, but there are also smaller providers like Freedom Mobile and Fido. Look into their coverage areas, pricing, and customer reviews to determine which one suits your needs best.
