I'm using the an SEO extension that allows me to add a canonical meta tag to layered navigation pages.

Next to this option, the extension states:

Don't use the "Current Category" value if the
"Allow All Products per Page" setting
(System -> Configuration -> Catalog -> Frontend) is disabled. 

In other words, enable the "view all" option in the catalog before using the option to add a canonical url to the layered navigation pages.

What this does then is make the canonical look like this:

<link rel="canonical" href="https://www.example.com/category?limit=all"/>

Is this a good thing to do?

Although this is not a Magento question, I don't think this will help for categories. The whole point of canonical is to help webmasters prevent duplicate content issues. So I guess this <link rel="canonical" href="https://www.example.com/category"/> is fine.
