A friend is visiting Canada from the UK. They're purchasing a Canadian SIM for their phone on arrival. Can I call them or text without charge?

Yes you would be able to since they would have a Canadian number at that point

Regardless of the provider they use while they're in Canada, so long as you have a Canada-Wide Plan you can call/TXT any Canadian # without Long Distance charges.
Keep in mind it applies so long as you don't go over your allotted monthly Daytime minutes. But if you call during your free/allotted time then you won't have any additional charges.
