If you're in need of a BC number to let people without long distance call for free, you can always get a VoIP app such as Fongo or Textnow to grab a number for free from BC.

The VoIP number becomes your main hub: you can set it up to ring through to your home number and any cell you may have in your possession. Easily configured over the internet. You can also use a VoIP app on your phone to make calls over any wifi network using your VoIP account without incurring mobile charges (minutes, long distance, roaming).

Thanks, Goran. I was looking for a way to do this without the use of VOIP.

@OP: in theory, you could get a Koodo home phone in Ontario and then port in a Vancouver number after the fact.
Agreed with Goran that there are many cost-effective or even free VOIP options assuming you have access to reliable cellular data or wifi.
Virgin Mobile offers their home phone adapter for the BC market. Basically, Telus doesn't want to cannibalize its landline phone network in BC/AB, and Bell doesn't want to cannibalize its landline network in ON/QC and maritimes.

Telus offers the device in their home market. Pricing similar to Koodo.
