Public Mobile is $15/month. You could also port the number for free to VOIP.ms and pay about $1/month to keep it parked.

There's no real reason that you have to park the number with a mobile phone company.

Where can I get a SIM card? Any places that offer free sims?
They run on Roger's network. You can get a sim card at a 7-11 store or online. I think it's $10.
Sometimes they have a promo for a free sim card with a $100 topup.

According to Fongo the $25 porting fee also prevents your number from "expiring." Fongo Account Inactivity & Deletion Policy ("Accounts will not be deleted due to inactivity if they have one of the following:... A number Ported to Fongo from another carrier")

Even though that's their rule, I'd still try to use a Fongo number every few months just in case. I hate to discover that they'd changed their policy without notice and expired my number just when I needed to use it.
