Nope. Incoming calls incur no long distance charges as long as you are in Canada

So if I am in Canada, and the person calling me, for example, is in Peru, and there is an incoming call from Peru...will I get charged for picking up and answering the call?

There are no long distance charges. It would be the same as if someone from Ottawa was calling you and you picked up the phone

To Clarify it only count towards your airtime if you don't have unlimited calling.

So if I have unlimited evening and weekends and someone from Peru calls me on Saturday, there would be no long distance charges and it would not count towards my airtime. Correct?
