I looked at the prepaid page and seems $15 base + $30 1GB data is good for me, can I just go bestbuy and buy a sim card, make a phone call to select plan and pay with credit card? Can I make it one time thing without monthly renew?

Anywhere prepaid Sims are sold absolutely. It's one time by default so unless you setup auto top-ups you're good.

Activating your account has to be done on-line. Here's the web page. Pick an address near where you will be staying. Your phone calls will include Canada-wide long distance, and calling back stateside will cost you 2 minutes for every one actually used.

Only a Koodo store will sell you the SIM, though all of the locations you posted have the vouchers for sale. It's similar to any other prepaid carrier like AT&T or Tracfone.

Thanks for all the kind responses. I found a koodo store in richmond bc and I'll likely stop by to have lunch in richmond on the first day, I'll buy sim card and voucher in the koodo store and beg the assitents to help me with online activation. Called and confirmed they have both sim card and voucher!

A quick update, I went to the Koodo store in Richmond Centre, spent 2 minutes to buy sim card and voucher, spent another 5 minutes to activate the card online using free wifi from Starbucks which is very close to the Koodo store, within less than 10 minutes, I have data now!!
