I bought an iPhone 6s second hand from kijiji and after I bought it, I stumbled upon a couple of forums with people in my situation getting their phone blacklisted a couple of months after their purchase second hand. So I just wanted some clarifications. The phone was brand new in box and sealed. If the guy stops making the monthly payments will my phone get blacklisted ? What if the phone was on a financing plan and he stops making the payments, would it still get blacklisted ?

This particular feature is not related to payments.
A device is added to the IMEI Blacklist if the original owner reports the phone lost or stolen. They are also the only person authorized to remove this device from the Blacklist. Once on the Blacklist it is impossible for anyone to use the phone within a Canadian Carrier.
For this reason Fido is only able to guarantee newly purchased devices from an authorized dealer.
I hope my answer helps clarify this a little.
