If your phone has a SIM card inside it's a GSM phone. If so, then you can buy another sim card in germany. Cellphone services in europe are mostly pay as you go. calculate your monthly usage and buy a plan that will get you through. Or contact your company and see what kind of services they offer for international usage. If it's cheaper then add that to your plan temporarily.
Those who have T-Mobile as a carrier, can use they phone abroad as well, since T-mobile is present in many countries.
Since you'll be going abroad, check also that your debit cards/credit cards are approved for transactions in germany, also see which ones don't charge transaction fees, if so. then it's better to use cash.
Also make sure you have a converter for your laptop/cellphone chargers(that's a US problem, not sure what is used in Canada)

Would getting a new SIM card and then hotspotting my laptop even provide enough data to do more than a couple days worth of work?
I know even watching 1 YouTube video can literally eat through half a GB of data.
I'll be gone for almost a month, and need constant internet access, so I'm not sure if that is the best option?
I checked and good news is Rogers is GSM so your phone is compatible. You might not get LTE in Europe but you should at least get 3G.
But since it was gotten on contract it will need to be unlocked. In the US they unlock it for free when you have fulfilled your contract period, or sometimes they'd even do it for free when you explain you have to travel abroad. But according to the Rodgers website they charge $50 for it..
How much data you get will depend on what package you get when you arrive in Germany. You'll be able to buy more if you run out of data as well I think. if you want to watch youtube force the resolution to 360 or 480 that should significantly cut down the data usage as opposed to watching HD.
The only other option would be to rely on your hotel's WiFi not really practical if you are constantly on the road.
That's the thing is I'm going to be staying with family and friends, and some of them are pretty old school and don't have internet/WiFi. So I won't have it on the road, nor will I have it at several of the places I'm staying.
I feel like I'm going to be bumming WiFi off of coffee shops half the trip, which I don't want to have to do ideally.
I guess I should call Rogers and see what they say, there must be a way to do this relatively easily.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
