Use a Canada eSIM to stay connected
The beauty of Canada’s provinces and territories is known around the world, with mountain views, bustling cities, and oceanside beaches.
When traveling to the Great White North, you’ll want to stay in touch with friends and family back home, and tell them about all the cool sites you’re seeing. This is where a Canada eSIM can help!
A Canada eSIM provides you with local mobile data on Canadian networks so you can browse the internet, check emails, and pop onto social media to share pictures of the curious moose standing next to your rental car.
How much travel data do I need in Canada, eh?
How much data you’ll need in Canada depends on how often you’ll be without a solid Wi-Fi connection. So will your trip involve sticking close to a hotel or conference centre? Or will you be venturing out into the wild, where data’s the only way to stay connected?
A Canada eSIM will keep you online anywhere you travel, from St. John’s to Vancouver. Feel free to start with a small data plan (1 GB) and see how it goes. You can always top up your eSIM if you need more data during your trip.
Will I pay roaming charges with a Canada eSIM?
Spend your money on cute souvenirs (like plastic beavers playing hockey on top of a decorative Tim Hortons cup), not roaming charges!
A Canada eSIM will connect you to a local network, allowing you to tell your device NOT to “roam.” It’s easy to use your Canada eSIM on any compatible device, and have instant prepaid data.
(Just make sure you have turned off Data Roaming for your Primary SIM card to prevent unexpected roaming charges on your next bill.)

What’s the best time to visit Canada?
Canada is beautiful year-round, but each season has its own special magic, so you might want to plan your Canadian vacation based on what kind of weather and scenery you’d like to experience.
April to June: If you enjoy the lush spring season, you may want to visit Canada from late April through early June. It’s especially lovely on the west coast, with its blooming trees, colourful gardens, and warm temperatures.
July and August: Yup, it gets hot during a Canadian summer. (Nope, it doesn’t snow year-round.) You can experience temperatures in the high 20s/low 30s (high 60s/low 90s) in many provinces, and there are plenty of beaches so you can stay cool with a dip in the ocean.
December through March: Eager to tackle winter sports, or experience a snowstorm firsthand? From ice skating, skiing, and snowboarding to snowshoeing, sledding, and ATVing or Ski-Dooing, experience the thrill of a classic Canadian winter.
What to pack for a vacation to Canada
When you’re packing for Canada, you might not know what kind of weather to expect. It might be sunny and warm one minute, but foggy and chilly an hour later. Pack lots of layers, and don’t forget these essentials …
Hiking Boots: If you plan on spending a lot of time outdoors (especially in the mountains or the woods), you’re going to want a comfortable, broken-in pair of hiking boots.
Umbrella: Year-round, it might rain in Canada, and you don’t want to be caught in a cold drizzle, so a light umbrella should be at the top of your packing list. (Ahem. We’re looking at you, Vancouver.)
Fleece Jacket: Regardless of the season, a fleece jacket is handy because it can provide a snuggly outer layer on a cool summer night when you’re enjoying a beach bonfire, and it can also double as a middle layer under a heavier coat if you’re making snow sculptures in the middle of winter.
