ALL nexus phones are factory unlocked. As long as its a Canadian variant, you will have ZERO issues!! Best of luck

P.S. If its a U.S variant. it should still work, but sometimes issues have came up .

The Nexus 5 shouldn't give you any issues, but make sure the APN settings are correct on the phone.  Otherwise you won't be able to use cellular data.

Mine auto changed to Koodo when the SIM was put in. Nexus phones seem to be on point for that kind of stuff

Most are.  Its one of the really great features about the Nexus series.

You still have to tweak MMS APN settings sometimes, in my own experience.
