How to use 3G on X300 in Canada

Hi folks, I have a UK model X300 with a SIM card slot that I haven't used for several years. I am heading to Canada (Toronto and then across by rail to Jasper and Vancouver) for a month in September and was wondering if it might be useful to pick up a local data SIM card.
