Adding canonical URLs across sqaurespace blog sites



I have a number of squarespace sites that use blogs. 

Occasionally I want to cross-post content across these sites. I don't want to damage SEO by having multiple pages of the same content therefore looking at using canonical URLs but there is no code injection for separate blog posts. 

Can anyone confirm that if I add a code block with the below inserted pointing back to the original version of that post this will be sufficient for search engines to recognize the first version of the blog post and therefore not hinder SEO for multiple blog posts displaying the same content. 

<link rel="canonical" href="https://example.com/blog/test-blog/" />

I know this doesn't help but perhaps will bring more attention to this topic. I reached out to the Squarespace team. They do not have code header injections for individual blog articles implemented which sucks. They "suggest adding a Code Block as a workaround but can't guarantee it will behave the same as the Code Header Injection." This is unfortunate. I'm not sure if it works.

if you use a Code Block I've done it for a Volvo job where they wanted to block our FAQ

<link rel=“canonical” href=“https://www.volvocars.com/uk/care-by-volvo/faq” />

This just tells spiders/robots where point of truth came from
to block you should use meta name in the Page Settings / Advanced  - PAGE HEADER CODE INJECTION - but this will block all SEO from the page and you may as well switch this off in the Squarespace settings: 
<meta name=“robots” content=“noindex, nofollow”>
