I saw this under Koodo Support

To complete a credit check, we'll need three pieces of identification:

1. Your date of birth.
2. A valid credit card, in your name. We do not accept prepaid credit cards.
3. Either your Social Insurance Number or driver's license.

I don't have a credit card. Can I get a credit check with just 1 and 3?

These are the conditions for a credit check

*The customer must be of legal age in his or her province of residence.
*Photo identification is mandatory only when a customer is activating at a retailer or kiosk in order to validate identity.
*If additional verification is required, customers may be asked to present Photo ID at a Koodo location for webstore purchases.
*Provincial Health cards are not acceptable as photo ID for the purpose of a credit check.
*Temporary driver licences can be used for a credit check.
*Koodo does not accept US credit checks.

According to the link below, a credit card is needed in order to perform a credit check. Personally, I don't believe this is true because I've gone through credit checks without a credit card with Koodo in the past. The other identification should be fine provided you're of legal age to enter into a contract (18 or 19 years of age, varies by province).

*Non-expired Canadian Driver's license
