Agree on the lift, there will be some, but IMHO, how much is going to depend on it's angle of attack, especially as compared to the rest of the plane. Figuring the CG might be tricky. At take off and landing speeds the canard will no doubt have a lot of lift. As speed picks up, maybe not so much?

Might be a neat project, but I think I'd be tempted to add a canard to an inexpensive foam EDF to do some initial testing. That should be able to guide you on a bigger project.
