Would it be possible to add a SIM to my existing account, pay for a single month of a plan and have a friend use the SIM while they're visiting Canada?

I don't know of any other economical options for visitors. Other countries offer unlimited usage SIM cards for cheap monthly costs

What do you think your friend’s need? Text only, need talk time and/or need some data?

Check out Koodo’s prepaid

Or public mobile

They don’t need credit check. They don’t need call in to cancel or anything.  My friends usually use prepaid service while they are here.

Prepaid unlimited calls and text promotion is $25 for 30 days plus the ~$10 for a prepaid SIM (can get one at a koodo store or Amazon). If you do an online activation you will save the $40 activation fee. A $30 prepaid promotion will get you unlimited calls and text and 500MB data (additional 500MB for ‘auto top up’ which is NOT recommended for a visitor). To extend the 30 day prepaid account at the end of the 30 day period, you will need to top up your Prepaid account.

There is no $40 connection fee for prepaid account😎

Needed service for one week in a remote area with no Koodo/Telus coverage. Petro Canada was a cheap alternative including the SIM.

Koodo SIMs are often available for less than retail on eBay.ca, mailed directly to your home.
