Lets check... wait for the Edit ;D
Edit - Updated:
Nokia Lumia 1520 RM937 Network Details:
2G: Quad-band GSM/EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)
3G: Quadband HSPA+ 1, 2, 5/6, 8 (850/900/1900/2100 MHz)
4G: Pentaband LTE 1, 3, 7, 8, 20 (800/900/1800/2100/2600 MHz)
Rogers Network Band:
GSM, UMTS, HSPA and HSPA+ at 850 MHz and 1900 MHz,
LTE technology at 2100/2600 MHz AWS
So looking at them and comparing, I would say your phone will definiately work, as long as the international phone is unlocked (carrier-free) and the settings are setup correctly (APN settings, which are ususally automatic these days). I don't see an issue.
Fine Print: Keep in mind, No carrier garuntees International Phone working on their network (especially carriers in North America) because the amount of power and frequency flux used in international towers are different than regulations permitted in canada and usa. (usa is stronger, but they don't worry about radiation as much... i guess? lol)
In other words, you may just not get the FULL SPEED of LTE MAX, but will the phone world?
Hope this helped! 🙂
Mark as Solution if you are satisfied!

Excellent thanks for confirming. I've picked up the phone and noticed that the highest the network indicator will lock up in Winnipeg is "ROGERS H+". Both my internet and MMS settings list "ltemobile.apn" currently too. Is there anything you could suggest that could put me on the right track for an LTE connection?

If your regional connection is at H+ then LTE won't factor in at all.
if the APN is correct (which it is) then there is nothing more you can do.
Btw, AWESOME Phone choice. O__O that 1520 International Version is calling my name... while I was researching for you, my jaw was dropped and I was in awe... It also has wireless charging built in?! WOW!
So I am tiny bit jealous 😛 hehe
Just to clarify are you saying H+ is just as good as or better than LTE?
And thanks it's a wonderful phone so far! Cost a pretty penny but it's the fatest and smoothest experience I've ever had with a mobile device.

Yes I'm in Winnipeg and I sit beside a fellow at work who gets LTE on his Android device that's on Rogers.

Actually, H+ stands for HSPA+ as a standard across the industry, no matter where the phone is from. It would say LTE (another industry standard term) if it connected to the LTE level of the network.
If the phone isn't connecting to LTE in an LTE area, I'd try first to insert the SIM into a Rogers branded phone. If it works fine, and the proper APN is programmed into the non-Rogers device, then I'm sorry to say, there's very little we can do about it. The problem could stem from the OS version or the transciever not connecting to our LTE frequency.

It's possible that it just doesn't work with our LTE. Not plugging, but the technical reality is that a telco-branded device would have gone through testing to ensure it works on that telco's network. All else is caveat emptor.

Users of Nokia Lumia 1520 can either install the latest update through the Push Notification or go to Settings -> Phone update -> Check for Update to manually download it. Then go to Settings -> Mobile + SIM to enable 4G.
