While I own my FP2 for five years and it’s still working fine, I, tbh, woul advise against one for you.
In Canada (or rather overseas in general), your phone has to be reliable, as Fairphone doesn’t offer support outside of the sales area (EU+). And spare parts, esp. batteries, are harder to come by.
The FP2 was a kind of test for modularity. E.g. the display is just a snap-on module. Since the complete phone is rather flexible, it is moved and ‘flexed’ when being carried in trouser pockets or loose in any kind of bag or pocket.
That can be stressing for the connections between the modules.
I guess, that’s the reason for a few FP2 to break. Especially the bottom module with the USB connection (an additional source of wear and tear) seems to be a weak spot, that’s breaking more often.
As a result, this module is no longer available from Fairphone, but by some resellers and on the second hand market. So, if this breaks, you could face troubles, living overseas.
The FP3 is newer and way more sturdy. E.g. the display is fixed with 13(!) screws.
Therefore the spare parts supply is no problem for years to come.
Edit: And it’s less likely that you will need spare parts.
