How do I use Canvas to deliver a unitised “Course”

I have a 1 year course which comprises five individual units and each unit comprises an average of 36 topics. Please refer to attached pdf showing outline structure. Each topic will in turn contain teaching/learning materials and assessments e.g.  lesson notes, power-points and quizzes. I would like to use Canvas to aid the delivery of the course, however, I’m not sure how I can get Canvas to do this. I was hoping to use modules to create the units and in turn use modules to create each topic within each respective unit. I understand, however, that the Canvas system will not allow modules to be created within modules. Does this mean I will have to treat each unit as a course i.e. create a course for every unit? I would greatly appreciate any advice on the best way to set up a blueprint for this type of course.
