It's not a 5S, check the original post.

It depends on the radio frequencies programmed into the phone.

If it's a North American one, it should work as long as it's unlocked, even if it's a Verizon or Sprint one (although LTE may not work with those models), IF it's unlocked.

Assuming that it is a Verizon model as you've stated, that would make it a model A1429. http://www.iphonefaq.org/archives/972158

Any iPhone 5 variant will work on Koodo's HSPA network.
