No, mirroring is blocked, presumably due to rights issues.  Chromecast isn't enabled in the VM TV anywhere app.

Even though Chromecast is not supported in the App, you should be able to "cast screen" from the phone - the experience is not good though and usually ends up with picture and sound sync issues (lipsync).

Yeah you might know this as screen mirroring, miracast or similar on your phone (android) or Airplay if you have an apple TV.

If your within the same service province where your registered ie., if your service is with virgin in Ontario you can mirror it anywhere in Ontario but not in Alberta. That's been my experience. Don't know why.
