Canonical tags defines that your URL is on only one domain. It means suppose you have a URL and it is open on only the same on which you are working. If your URL is not opening at one URL then there will be a canonical issue.

It would be nice if Google provided a full report as to why a website ranks where it does. Unfortunately, even the most experienced SEO professionals don’t have the full answer sheet. Over time, however, Google and the other search engines provide the public with information on how they can improve their search ranking by implementing technical changes to their website. One of the biggest evolutions to come out of these releases, and still one of the most misunderstood, is the development of the canonical tag.

Cannibalisation can be a testing idea to comprehend (and difficult to claim: "ca-non-yuck separate eye-zay-evade"), however it's fundamental to making a streamlined site.

it attributes in  HTML tag, the benefits of canonical tag is protect your content from duplication and prevent users from multiple URL.it suggest to search engine crawler that content in URL is original.basicaly  it used when two or more URL display the same content, that's not good for your content so it needs to use canonical tag.,

   an example of a canonical tag is below:
                                                              <link rel=”canonical” href=”https://www.onpageseo.com”/>
in the field of seo, it helps google know the article on your website is not copied and it should be found search results found. if you have several similar versions of the same content, you pick one “canonical” version and point the search engines at that. This solves the duplicate content problem where search engines don’t know which version of the content to show.

Canonicalization for SEOs refers to normalizing (redirecting to a single dominant version) multiple URLs. ... Another option for dealing with duplicate content is to utilize the rel=canonical tag
