I've rotated the photo for you, below. The tree is leaning at an angle, so you need to remove the existing tree-tie and re-tie it lower, at the point I've put a green line. If you can get someone to help you bend the tree back to an upright position, you can use the tree-tie to help keep it upright. As treehugger said, get rid of the cane. If you can't easily straighten the tree or think you could break it, I would wait until it has lost its leaves at the end of autumn, dig it up and re-plant it vertically.
