If the name of your plan says Canada Wide then the answer is yes. All the Canada wide plans include international text messaging.

If your on prepaid the answer is still yes. No charges to text to anywhere from inside Canada.

And make sure that your in-laws know that it may cost THEM dearly. I had a few friends who didn't realize that Canada is a different country for which international rates apply (unless you have an international plan) and woke to a ridiculous phone bill.
