How do i get more air in the steps in canter?

Set a cavaletties (small jump not bigger than 50cm) and set them up like cater poles. If you do that and set it up as a bounce that will also help.
Lots of trot to canter transitions. When asking for the canter, turn into a corner, give a little half check with the reins and immdediately ask for the canter. If done properly the head will drop in a bit and the horse should jump a bit into the canter and therefore be a more bouncy collected canter. Then go back to trot and try it again. The horse will learn to jump into the canter and collect instead of stretching out
