Should I text to activate the plan before I fly or once I arrive at the destination? (for ex. Will I be charged 60c for the text to activate in Europe?).

You must send it from Canada. So most likely before u leave on a flight or something. That morning not the day before. Just don't forget. :)

If you are outside of Canada and the US, you will have no connection at all unless you activate before leaving. The activation takes effect immediately and the clock starts ticking at midnight.

No, you don't have to get a plan, but if you are planning to use your phone while travelling internationally, it lowers the pay-per-use rates to a  more reasonable sum. Have a look at the add-ons to see if there is value for you.
