Consider downloading the BBM app for your Iphone or Android so you can use WIFI messaging or buy a SIM card once you get to Canada. Roaming charges for calls and texts to outside Canada can be really expensive!
Check with your credit card company to see if you have Travel Health Insurance and consider buying it if you don’t! We all make sure we are covered outside of Canada when we cross the border!
