Not exactly holding my breath on this but would be nice to know if Fido is actually in the process of pushing this update out (not that they would say if they were, probably get the famous keep checking the update page! line they love).
Meanwhile security patch is still from July 2016, sort of laughable at this point. Oh well, at least the phone was free...

Welcome to the community!
As far as I am aware, Android 7 has not been released for the H812 (see here, here, and here). I am doubtful as to whether it will be released for this phone. I understand some sources say planned upgrade to 7.0. However, those sources usually refer generally to the LG G4 and not specific versions of that model. Indeed, the H815 (and some others) did receive the Nougat update. Interestingly, LG Canada lists the H812 as discontinued whereas there is no such mention of status regarding the H815 on LG UK. You would have to contact LG Canada to determine whether Android 7 is planned for the H812.
Hope this helps
Possibly off-topic post.
Would be nice that there would be an actual update that permits a full unlock, and not a BS seemingly random ”you're in Canada, you don't get to unlock your phone”. H815 folks can, the Korean models can, US models can. Is this a decision from the Canadian carriers to lock the phones? If so, it's bad for business. I'm certainly not getting an LG again. Even if they give me a phone for free, no ”upgrade fee” (which is yet another money grab).
If you read the fine print on your contract, most phones sold in Canada are locked if you buy them from a carrier with the exception of Google's Nexus and Pixel product line. That has been going on for a total of 19 years of owing multiple cell phones. Furthermore, this locked phone applies to all manufacturers including iphone, Nokia, samusng, LG, Motorolla, ZTE, ...etc.
The only way to purchase an unlcoked phone is to buy it from the store (e.g., apple store, samsung store). Alternatively, if you want to unlock your phone now before Dec you can do it yourself via some sites off the internet by paying a small fee.
