If you go to a koodo store they can put a SIM card in to check if it's unlocked. If it's not just unlock it using one of the many websites that will do it for you. These guys are decent. Not free but works well. https://www.freeunlocks.com/

It's not always as easy as popping in a sim card for an unlocked iphone. Sometimes an iphone may be unlocked and it still wont work until you update the carrier settings on the phone

Also they are pretty cheap.

iPhones are not unlocked via unique code. Their IMEI is added to Apple's unlocked database and iTunes is used to unlock the phone (factory reset required).

Ivan is correct. If there are any issues with the unlock, Apple will need to be contacted.

The best way to find out if your phone is locked or unlocked is to visit an apple store and they can check. However if you bought the phone from a carrier, then it will be locked to that carrier

Where is your iphone from?
Darko is right if it is from Telus then you wont need to unlock it. However if your phone is from another provider, I would strongly advise that you unlock it with them as it would much less expensive.
The unlocking sites unlock iphones usually for $100+
