Oonly restrictions would be if your cellphone is locked or doesnt have the correct frequency bands to operate.
If you stop by a koodo store to get the sim card they can test that all out for you though.

You mentioned you were using a "Koodo prepaid SIM"? If so, you cannot use Koodo roaming in UK. Prepaid roaming is only available for US destination.

Note that If you needed to buy any top up voucher for more minutes or data boosters, your international credit card likely wont be accepted on Self Serve. You would need to buy a top up voucher from a store and then enter the code to claim the value.

There's only one type of Koodo prepaid SIM. Using the phone in Canda or roaming in the US depends only on what prepaid booster you buy. Unfortunately, Koodo stores can't activate prepaid on site... you have to do it online yourself. But you can buy the payment vouchers there and use the mall's wifi to register and activate. All you need beyond the SIM and voucher is a valid email address. No other credentials required. For mobile data services, you will need to set-up a Koodo APN. https://www.koodomobile.com/help/setting-data-your-non-koodo-phone

Ah, I misunderstood, I thought the customer wanted to bring his/her Koodo prepaid SIM to UK.
