You will need to buy a prepaid sim and sign up with prepaid and then port your postpaid number over to prepaid on self serve

If you really want to go pay as you go without any monthly payments, you should go with any of the other prepaid providers in Canada. With the exception of 7-11 Speakout, all have a minimum top up of $100 per year. Seven Eleven Speakout has a top up requirement of $25 per year, but I would not recommend it for anything but emergency calling only.

If you switch away from Koodo or Telus, you will probably have to pay to unlock your phone, so keep that cost in mind.

The net cost for the Koodo prepaid SIM is zero, since they will credit that back when you set up your new prepaid account, even if you are porting in your current monthly number. Supply a valid credit card for auto payments and you also get a 10% ongoing credit, so your minimum cost is $13.50 a month plus taxes.
