Is it possible to buy one of these and have them work on the Sprint network somehow?

Hello and welcome to Android Central spheresofmadness86!

No, it will not be compatible. The Canadian model, G935W8, is designed for the global network standard, GSM. The Sprint network is on the minority CDMA network that is only now, partially, used in the U.S.A. and China. This is why both of these countries have the CDMA compatible quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets whilst the rest of the world has the Exynos octa core model.
