How to keep prepaid sim number if no activity at all

Hi All

So i will be leaving Canada in a couple months and i was thinking of buying a prepaid sim and keeping to use after i return but i do have a few questions.

So if i don't use the prepaid sim at all like no calls or messages for a certain amount of time, will that deactivate the card?

What if i top up off every month, will that be able to keep the number active?

I would like to have a active number once i land back in Canada after a few years.

Any information would be much appreciated!

You will need to keep the SIM active by topping up your account regularly. You do not need to use the SIM in a phone during the time away. If this is important to you, I suggest buying the annual plan, and topping up each year.
