Can a member of the Canaanites expect to be among the righteous? What must he do to stand in such a position?

  • I don't think Canaanites exist today. Do you mean theoretically?

    I do not have time to develop the answer at the moment but it seems to me the starting point is Mishneh Torah Hilchos Melahim u'Milchamotehim chapter 6 (and its sources) and my recollection and cursory review suggests that the Canaanites were required to be given the option to observe the Sheva Mitzvos b'nei Noach.

    According to רש"י, אליעזר עבד אברהם was a כנעני.
