My mother-in-law just moved to Canada from the UK. She does NOT have permanent residency, a Canadian driver's licence, or a SIN number. Can she still sign up for a phone plan? What are the requirements?
Alternatively, can I get a second line on my phone for her to use from her mobile? She has an unlocked iPhone.

That's where you'll find the requirements for postpaid.

Prepaid doesn't have the same. Alternatively yes you can add a line for you authough keep in mind as the account holder you will be responsible to ensure that all lines are paid up.
