I am heading to USA in two weeks. I have Easy Roam on my plan. What will happen if someone calls me from a Canadian number while I am in the USA? Will I be charged?

And assuming you have not sent any texts or used any data while in the US in the previous 24 hours

@ANDREW it depends on what you mean "will I be charged?". 

If you mean:  "will I be charged the $7 for 24hrs of US Easy Roam?", the answer is "if you are already within a 24 hour period of Easy Roam, then no; otherwise yes, and your 24 hours starts at the time you answer the call."  

If instead you mean:  "will I be charged a pay-per-use/per-minute fee for the call?", with Easy Roam enabled, the answer is no, but see above.
