Is there a way to restrict access to specific pages and content within Canvas? I don't know what to search on.
Cynthia, the only way to restrict access is by hiding (unpublishing) pages or content you don't want students to see. There is no way to differentiate who can and can't see certain content items, only different types of assignments (Assignments, discussions, quizzes).
Does this address your question or am I missing what you are trying to accomplish?
Unfortunately it answers it - it would be great if we could show just
certain students or groups certain content.

What kind of content are you looking to show students or groups? You may be able to leverage the Student Groups feature to accomplish what you are looking to do. If you could be a little more explicit in what you're trying to accomplish, I'm sure we can all provide some kind of solution that might work for you! ;-)
I am not sure if you want it permanently hidden or not, but we gate our courses. This means we assign an Open and Close date for things like an assignment/quiz/discussion and that will prevent a student from seeing the content until that date arrives. Would this work?
If so, I can show you a simple API that may help.
Not really the need to have specific people/groups/sections attached to
modules and/or pages is important as we have courses were there are
different pathways or participants who need to see only certain information.
I used eCollege in the past and it had that feature. I miss it.
Were you able to find an answer to your question? I am going to go ahead and mark this question as answered because there hasn't been any more activity in a while so I assume that you have the information that you need. If you still have a question about this or if you have information that you would like to share with the community, by all means, please do come back and leave a comment.
No, apparently canvas cannot do the restricted access to pages.
