I use only soft pastel but...if I had the *neeeed* to use oil pastels on canvas I would buy the sticks, the canvas and ...would start having fun and experimenting. I don't think painting with oil pastels is very different from using other medium. Your artwork still requires the usual: good composition, clean colors, great subject...you know, the art stuff!!
Go for it!!!
Starting is sometimes the most difficult thing.

PS:I don't think oil pastels need fixing.

I use oil pastels on canvas all the time. They dry and hold up well just as oils do. I use odorless mineral spirits to blend with.
