Update: It seems the rest of the world with an Xperia Z already has the Android 4.4.4 KitKat update, however, as per Sony Xperia CA Twitter account, it's coming to those Z devices in the Great White North for providers Bell and Virigin Mobile Canada. If you haven't gotten the latest update to this version of Android, then you are likely to get it in the near future. Another device in Canada to get the 4.4.4 update are the Xperia ZL, with Bell and Virgin Mobile Canada as well. To be able to get the update, you will need the Sony PC Companion installed. So far, there's no news about any of these devices getting Android 5.0 Lollipop. 

We previously mentioned that the Xperia SP would be getting Android 4.4.4 KitKat however this was an error that Sony Canada published. The device will be receiving Android 4.3. Sorry for the confusion.

      Sorry about that, Sony Canada posted the mistake and we believed it. It has now been amended in the article. The SP is getting Android 4.3.
