Unfortunately Koodo can't do anything about it. You will need to terminate your contract with Telus and the port your number to Koodo
So I'd need to cancel the contract or can I transfer the contract to Koodo ?

You'd have to terminate the contract and do a BYOD plan with Koodo, if you calculate the savings for plan, normally you'll recoup the termination fee in around 10 months

It depends so very much on the phone you have. A premium smartphone plan works out to about $5 per month more on Telus than Koodo, if you bundle any other Telus products, when all factors are considered. As you drop in value of device, or if you do not have any other Telus services, the difference increases, first to about $10 per month, then up a bit.
Oh I see that makes sense cause all I know is I want out of Telus I'd save 40$ a month if I do

But don't forget the cost of buying out your phone if any.

I recommend calling in to Telus and ask how much it would cost if you cancel but don't cancel yet. If you feel that you want to transfer to Koodo, ask for your Telus account number and find a friend who is already with Koodo and ask to be referred before coming to a Koodo Shop to activate. The link for the referral site is koodoreferral.com. You and your friend will get a $25 bill credit. Hope this helps 🙂
