Do I need to do anything special to make it work overseas?
I'm going to Frankfurt & Dubai in March.
When I'm at the airport in Frankfurt, can I just dial my home number in Toronto and call her up? Do I dial extra digits?
What about when I'm in Dubai?
Do I just call my house in Toronto? 1-416-580-****

As for dialing your home, you will probably need to dial the country code before you dial the number.
OP's concern is how to dial back home from anywhere OP may be. . . Regardless of the rates, the number to dial is +1-416-580-**** . . . the plus sign (+) is important for international dialing.
