The fixed canard is there for AoA, mainly during landing or T.O adding slow speed handling. Fixed canards provides vortex above the wing surface at a predetermined AoA range. A small delta fighter with no other pitch ctrl surface is not an high AoA airplane.

It's also there to minimize supersonic trim drag.
