Thanks to @hyelton who provided fast mirrors to, as of now, Bell, Telus, Rogers and Koodo images

Old links below. They still work, but are awfully slow!

If you are running stock, check if an OTA is available for you.
If not, you can alway get it from sammobile.com or samsung-updates.com... links to official firmwares below.
Please note, we are missing Virgin image links!

If you're looking for pre-rooted & deodexed CWM/TWRP flashable versions (with or without KNOX), please look at @kriEv thread here

Guys, please keep all canadian i747m 4.3 Jelly Bean discussions here so that we do not clutter the forum with useless threads.

Installation & root method with CF-Root by @SkyboneNoya
Update:
If you already have a custom recovery installed :
Make a recovery backup of your current rom
(to restore to after you get a custom recovery installed and save it to your computer as well as backing up all SD cards... It’s just a good practice.)

If coming from any other ROM than stock 4.1.2 :
Install 4.1.2 update with odin via SamMobile.com
Clear data/cache/dalvik in recovery (or hang on the Samsung logo for the night).
Upgrade to 4.3 OTA or via Odin
Hint : Use provided links to your carriers images above!

Root method
Go to [SGH-I747/M] CF-Auto-Root|
Follow the steps on post 2 in that thread.
Once rebooted: open up SuperSU, click OK then normal and reboot.

I used the KNOX uninstaller and when trying to restore back to stock I had google apps issue warning locking me out of the system. So use at your own discretion.
You should be good to go.
The rest is pretty easy.

Also, you might have trouble installing custom roms at this point. I747MVLUEMK5 is probably not listed in the installers yet. That's a whole other story.
Other options here as well if the above didn’t work for you. |Guide|How-To| Root & Install Custom Recovery for 4.3 Update |22 Nov 2013|

To enable USB debugging through Developer Options, go in System Settings/About and click on build number about 7 times. (old google trick if you didn’t know)

PS. Thanks and donations to Chainfire and other helping community members creating these easy to find threads for us should be common cents

WARNING : Carrier IQ seems to be present for all 3 major carriers as found here by @DexedrineXR
UPDATE : @D0T-C0M got an answer from Fido, who asked Samsung directly, stating that no phone sold in Canada has Carrier IQ installed.

I wonder if we are going to run into the same downgrade problems that the At&t ota had.

Can anybody who updated post a screen shot of their about screen in settings please?

Just completed the update. So far, so good.
Some minor (but nice) visual enhancements, speed is at least as good as before, nothing to complain about but nothing groundbreaking (but nobody was expecting that from 4.3).
Can't post a screeshot right now but baseband is mk5 and kernel is 3.0.31-2140838

I updated with kies and I'm with Rogers.
I haven't done a factory reset (like I usually do after a major update) but the responsiveness of my phone makes me believe it may not be necessary. Time will tell.

If you are stock, unrooted, you'll easily update over the air.
If you're going the factory image way using of the above links, you'll need to use either Odin or Mobile Odin.
