You can buy a pre-paid sim card for $20 that includes $20 credit. Prepaid plans start at $15 per month.

Sim cards are tri-cut, so just make sure that you use the right format. Once the sim is active, insert it in the phone and reboot. Then you should be good to go.

I believe that model is a CDMA device and will no longer work on Koodo as they have shut down that portion of the network. Its basically a paperweight now unfortunately.
