You can call 911 as long as you have a functioning sim card in your phone. No need for a plan. So to answer your question: yes.

All cellphones sold in Canada must be able to call 911 even without a SIM card -assuming there is a cellphone tower nearby, doesn't matter which provider it belongs to. Ever seen a cellphone say "Emergency calls only"? That is why. So yes, you can make calls to 911 with that plan, but you don't have to sign up for any plan. All you need is a cellphone.
