How do I link to an LTI app from a Canvas page?

I know how to invoke an LTI app from the course and user navigation menu. But I want to call that app from inside a Canvas HTML page, via a link or URL. Is that possible? How would the LTI parameters such as the key, secret, user's email address, get passed to the LTI app, from the web page (if that were indeed possible)?

 

In one of the docs, I read "Once configured, external apps may be able to be added to Modules, Course Navigation, the Rich Content Editor, and Assignments. The external app should include information about where the app can be placed in Canvas.", but nothing about adding them to a Canvas page.

 

Thanks in advance.
