I have a 58" bending branches arrow straight. The shaft length is 35" which works well for me when sitting in the seat. If the canoe was fully loaded and I knelt at the stern then I might go with a shaft 2 to 4" shorter. However, I find it works ok kneeling in myunloaded canoe when paddling solo more in the middle of the boat. Use the fitting guide the paddle makers have on their web sites as a starting guide.
