The fact that Opera is now owned by the chinese does not instill confidence.

Yes, it is possible the free bandwidth and compute for this was sponsored by a entity with deep pockets and incentive to funnel your traffic through a set of network links.  I can't find the privacy policy for their VPN capability -- maybe it's there, but I can't find it.  However, if you use it really just for additional security on public wifi and only with HTTPS with TLS, it might be better than nothing.

The VPN provider used for this is based in Canada with strict privacy laws. Although opera is owned by a Chinese company now, it is still based in Norway, which also has strict privacy laws. This is what I've read anyway.

Rules or laws are really meaningless to China gov.
If they demand to know what is going on, they will get it. Companies will have to grant them access otherwise they will be in trouble or force to shutdown.
