A third party unlocking service should work, (link below). You'll need your tablets' IMEI and model number to see if the service can unlock the device. From the tablets' dialpad, dial *#06# to obtain the IMEI number. Go to: Settings and scroll down to 'About device' to obtain the model number. If this service cannot unlock your tablet, you may have to go through Rogers to get it unlocked.

First, we'll need to verify the correct model number. I dug this up over on Samsungs' support website. Can you confirm this is the correct tablet and model number? Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 LTE (SM-T817W (ZKAXAC), the last six digits may not appear under model number. The model number can be found in Settings > About device.

The title of your post threw me off a little. The LTE provision is for data only, not phone, otherwise you would see a dial pad. Looking at cellunlocker's site, I could not find the model number above. As mentioned previously, you'll probably have to take this tablet to Rogers to get it unlocked. I'll keep looking around, but I think that's your only option.

Is there a sticker somewhere on the tablet with a Barcode of some sort and/or a bunch of device information ? The IMEI is usually there. The box it came.in will have it too.
