Cell Phone Plans For Students and You!
We are pleased to partner with Phonebox, a telecommunications provider in Canada whose products are tailored to the needs of international students. With Phonebox, CHN offers Canadian cell phone numbers with very affordable monthly plans, starting at just $25/month, with no contractual commitments. Plans are available to both international students and Canadian host families.
Our aim is to make it easy to get set up with a Canadian phone plan using students’ own phones from their home countries. This allows them to hit the ground running in Canada, and will help us avoid students asking host families to sign lengthy contracts on their behalf.
Please note that students opting in to this service will have a SIM card sent to them by mail to activate their Canadian phone number. Students may request these SIM cards be sent to their homestay prior to or after arrival. If you receive mail for an inbound student, please do hold it for them. The students will have ample support in activating the SIM card and their number upon arrival.
In addition, we have negotiated with the provider to make these discounted cell phone plans available to CHN host families, too! To register, visit https://mysim.gophonebox.com/?bn=1485. This is a special link just for CHN students and host families, which eliminates the $10 SIM card charge. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
