I’m currently in NYC on vacation and my mom has contacted Koodo twice now about unlocking my phone which is an iPhone 6 . Both representatives have told her that they should be unlocked by now. I went to AT&T yesterday, before the second call to Koodo, and found out my phone wasn’t unlocked and the AT&T representative asked if an email confirmation has been sent. I told my mom this and she said no email has been sent. How do I know if my phone is “officially” unlocked?

You would need to put another SIM card in it to see if it's been unloecked or not.

Unlock it from self serve. You will still have to wait for the email.

@Jan: you need another SIM from another provider to test and trigger the unlock (if you haven't unlock using iTunes). If you are in the US, you could visit an Apple store also, ask them to check on the status of the phone. They should be able to check if the phone was locked or not.
