Is there a way to create a reference page when creating a canvas
I'm not sure what you mean by reference page.
See the Pages section of the Canvas Instructor Guide: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10460-canvas-instructor-guide-table-of-contents#jive_content_id_Pages, starting with How do I create a new page in a course?. If this does not answer your question, please let us know what you are trying to do.
