Hi Paul,
No, I don't think you could forward to non Canadian numbers. There are issues with call forwarding with prepaid also. Many complained that they could not enable the forwarding function.

Best not to try it directly.

There was a horrible thread a few years ago by someone who got nailed for a lot of unanticipated roaming.

You can get organized with an inexpensive VoIP service and handset app to check your voicemail when you have wifi available in Mx, or have your Koodo calls forwarded to the VoIP number, again when you have wifi or data.

May be a lot of work for just a few calls. But in any forwarding scenario, remove your Koodo sim from the phone when you leave Canada.
