Koodo does offer a suspend account option but it's 15$ per month. Another way would be to port your number to prepaid where it would only cost 15$ every 90 days. Then when you get back, Port your number back to a postpaid account If you have access to a voip service you could also port your number over to here.

Chad has the right idea. Flipping to prepaid keeps everything in the cell family if that's what you want to do. Porting your number over to a VoIP provider may give you even better options. CallCentric or similar will cost about $3 a month with pay-per-use traffic at pennies a call, and your current calls can be forwarded to your new number easily, depending on where you are going to be located. Free Voicemail option available on VoIP as well. I give out only my CallCentric number, then forward to Cdn cell, US cel or landline (controlled over the internet) as I please. Worth investigating.
