I think the service from Fido was discontinued last summer.

 

That said, from your computer, go to Google's Device Manager page and log in using the same Google account you used on that phone. If the phone is powered (obviously) and has Internet access, it will provide you with its GPS location. You don't need to have installed anything beforehand for this to work.

 

You also have the option of ringing the phone at max volume, locking it, or wiping it.

 

If you know it's been stolen, contact the police. Trying to recover the device yourself could result in injury to yourself (if the thief is violent) or open you to criminal charges (such as beating up the thief, or breaking into someone's home. "I was trying to recover my property" is not a valid defense). Though if it was stolen, it most likely wiped by now, making it untraceable through the Device Manager.
