Will hotspot work in Canada?

I have an Android phone on an old T-Mobile plan that doesn’t include all of North America.  I’m in the US, but will be traveling to Canada next week.  I’ll add North America ($10 per month) to my plan.  Will this enable me to use my phone as a hotspot in Canada as well?  Or just phone / text / data?  I’m planning to have wifi access, but I work from home and I want to have the hotspot available as a Plan B.  If any additional info would be helpful, please just ask.  Thanks!

HotSpot functions are controlled by your device.  You can enable hotspot whether you are roaming or not.  It will still use your data, if you have data roaming enabled and your account can roam internationally.
