I don't think so... If nose heavy was the problem, you would need a lot more rudder to stay level in flight than you described. If your CG is off and you know it, sure, fix it. If you can see a lot of up trim on the elevator, maybe that is helping to pull some to the canopy. If you have a lot of pull to the canopy, I am still thinking wing incidence.
