You can check out Koodo's roaming partners here:

And then you can go to those carrier's website to see their coverage

I went to Cuba (Holguin, specifically) and used roam like home a couple days. The signal was great. Side note, unrelated, buy/pack an adapter to charge your phone as they don’t use the same outlets we do in Canada

They use both NA and EU outlets, depending on where you go. The travel agencies have this information.

Regarding signal, Cubacel is the only roaming partner because it's the only network. Coverage is good, but most of Cuba still has only 2G, which is too slow for many tasks other than email or chat. I went recently and only used Easy Roam when I needed to use my phone (first and last day). In between, I would buy ETECSA WiFi cards at the hotel (~$1.40 per hour). It only counts your time while you are connected, so remember to disconnect if you're finished.
