Cell phone plans

Cellphone service providers are different companies in Canada. Some students, particularly those from the U.S. may be able to extend their current plan to allow for their move to Canada. However, many students may find it cheaper and more practical to obtain a new cellphone and plan here in Montreal. Please note that our office does not endorse any one provider.

Getting a phone

Some companies will provide a free phone/device when you sign into a plan with them. However, you can always check the McGill classifieds for used phones. Some service providers may also sell used certified phones at a discounted rate.
