I used international calling card from my phone which has koodo connection and I got additional bill of $ 64 from koodo. I have exceeded  free 200 mins it seems. Is it like that? But i was not using Koodo's  service, right ?

You could save long distance charge with calling card. 
But your are using Koodo's service to make phone calls. So if you used more minutes than included, there will be minutes overage charges.($0.5/min)

You might want to check Koodo's International Long Distance Saver add-on ($3/month)

Check out Fongo in your app store. It uses data instead of minutes. You can get a free Canadian phone number and call anywhere in Canada for free. This is best used when you're connected to WiFi if your plan doesn't have a lot of data.

Even with a toll free number, your minutes are still being used as well. As Mayumi said, the add-on might make it cheap enough to use that, or go with Ivan's suggestion of using Fongo. Alternatively you could add unlimited calling or a plan that has it so it doesn't become an issue again if you regularly call overseas.
