"fake" email account .. email forwarded to real email account

I have a domain.ca registered for years now. It's with Sibername.

I want someone to send me an email to user1@domain.ca or user2@domain.ca or etc.

Is there anywhere I can get those emails automatically forwarded to my real email account on Hotmail? I don't have a mail server installed for domain.ca and I don't plan to

That is entirely dependant on your registerer / domain host or DNS setting.

Method one: Domain host forwarding:
The domain host/registerer is the company your domain is currently residing on.

Some domain company like this one Porkbun for example, support free e-mail forwarding service.

You might be able to do that with your current domain host. You will have to look into it. If they don't support this feature, you will have to transfer it out of your domain host and into one that does support this feature in order to use this without a e-mail server.

Method two: You will have to point your domain's DNS setting to a free e-mail hosting service to and let those free e-mail server hosting service to forward email for you.

This article here can give you some idea on what is involved to set something like that up.
