You can text the whole world, Maria, it's all included in the base plan :)

As long as you are physically in Canada, there's no extra charge for sending or receiving texts from anywhere... Canada, overseas, US, etc.... it's all included in the baseplan.

Should you decide to go visit your friend in Georgia, you would have to purchase a US roaming booster for use while in the states.
