In the right margin of the “Settings” page, click on the email address you need to confirm (the email address will appear in blue text).

Click “Re-Send Confirmation” to receive a new confirmation email from Canvas.

Check your email inbox for the confirmation email and follow the instructions to finalize your email confirmation. If you do not see the email in you inbox, check you spam folder.
