After buying a prepaid SIM, how long do I have to activate it on-line and choose a plan?

Will be away for more than 6 months and probably cancel service. Would like to purchase SIM before leaving and activate on-line just before return to Canada so phone is functional on arrival in Canadian airports.

Any Koodo store/kiosk sells them. I know u use to be able to get them on line but I believe they are still working on the website. I don't believe they expire either.
And bob where you going out of curiosity

Thanks for reply. Snowbirding this fall, with no need to protect number. US & Mexico local plans work a little better than roaming from Canada.
