Long-distance charges on mobile
Québec, Canada, and United States: Long-distance charges in Québec, in Canada (outside Québec), and in the United States are $0.75/min.
International: Consult the international long-distance regular rates list and the list of rates with a plan.
Paying per-minute rates is rarely advantageous. If you plan to make or receive long-distance calls, we recommend subscribing to a plan adapted to your needs.
Charges on incoming long-distance calls
Generally, only the usual airtime charges apply when you receive long-distance calls. However, if you’re outside your local calling area at the time you receive a long-distance call, variable fees apply depending on where you are when you receive the call.
How long-distance calls are billed
Some long-distance charges may apply, depending on where the calls are made or received:
- If you’re at home or elsewhere within your local calling area, your outgoing calls may be considered long-distance depending on the destination you are calling.
- If you’re travelling outside your local calling area, your incoming and outgoing calls may be considered long-distance depending on the destination you are calling.

Long-distance charges when forwarding a call
Forwarding an incoming call from another number to your mobile
Long-distance charges apply if you pick up the call outside your local calling area.
Forwarding an outgoing call from your mobile to another number
If you forward calls to a number outside your local calling area, long-distance charges will apply if someone answers the call or the caller leaves a voice message.
Long-distance charges when listening to voice messages
If you listen to your voice messages from your local calling area, no long-distance charges apply. However, if you listen to them outside your local calling area, long-distance charges will apply.
If you listen to your voice messages while you’re outside of the territory covered by your plan or Videotron’s extended network, roaming fees will apply.
