I live and work in Canada. My employer is based in the US and sometimes call me. Will I get charged long distance, roaming or any other fees if I answer there calls on my phone?

No you will not get charged extra fees. It would be considered as a normal call someone would make from Canada to you. The only thing you'll use your normal airtime minutes.

Have a nice day!

You can accept a call from anywhere: USA, Russia, China, Zimbabwe - it doesn't matter as long as you're in Canada. Normal airtime usage applies, as Robert stated.
