I'm putting together a canard and was wondering if the all-flying forward wing which gives pitch control could be used to provide some sort of roll control by splitting the surface in half and mixing on the tx?

Its perfectly possible,
I had a Nigel Hawes Can-Doo Which had split Fore-planes and twin servos and was set up just like this.
Mine also had ailerons on the wing and I had the aileron function on the Fore-planes on a mix with a switch so I could switch it out if needed. With it in roll rate was fast!
If you can find his original article it mentions just this set up,

That's good news Cliff thanks for your input, I would have experimented anyway but it's good to know in advance.

I was talking about canard roll in our local Chinese restaurant recently, the waiter advised that it was best eaten with Hoisin sauce

How about 3 servos and canard control
The trick (and not my idea) is to the have the aileron servos mixed as elevrons and here comes the wild bit...
Cross the port servo with the starboard canard..best to mechanically reduce it travel and the result is manic on low rates....
I'll see if I can post the creators video.
