A student has submitted an assignment to me (the instructor) via email. Is there a way that I can upload this submission into Canvas as the student's submission?
This question comes up frequently, even as recently as last month: Can a teacher submit an assignment for a student?
The answer is that you cannot without masquerading as the student, which is something that is often limited to Canvas administrators.
There is a feature request for this capability: Submit an assignment on behalf of a student
Hi Rob and welcome to the Community! It currently is not possible to submit an assignment on behalf of a student, but that may be changing. This idea, Submit an assignment on behalf of a student, has been around for a while and has received a good number of votes. I see that this note has been added to the post,
This idea has been added to our product plan for Q2 2019 and will influence development within Canvas. Follow this idea to receive updates as they are available, and check out Priority: Assignments 2.0
Adding this idea to our product plan means we will be working on it, but it does not guarantee that it will be developed exactly as defined by the idea, or that it will be added to the production environment.

Aside from this note, I would suggest that you vote for the idea as well as the more votes the better, and you might find the thread of this feature idea interesting as well.
I hope this helps and best wishes!
