I have a track with some duration. I want to set a specific color for the canvas for the first 10 sec, and then change it to another one.

you can't; canvas color is same as video background color; do you have media that is smaller than project dimensions?

but an easy workaround is to put a full dimensions callout or image, with color you want,  on bottom track; then, the canvas will have the color for the duration of the callout on timeline; put other media above the callout track

You cannot change the color of the canvas itself but you can place a colored shape on the first track. That would be the background layer for all intensive proposes.

 Color it whatever color you like, then change it's color through an animation or simply apply a cut and change the color at the split in the shape when desired.
