IP canonicalization is another critical step to good website SEO. It happens when your site’s IP address doesn’t redirect to its traditional URL. ::)

many people have already explained this but i would like to keep it simple and explain it once again so that people can understand what the fuss is really about
example.com
http://example.com etc
are all different urls according to google , even when they are pointing to the same site but are different urls.So the backlinks also get distributed between the two versions of the urls
To avoid that , the concept of canonicalization is used. We select one of the two versions of the urls according to our own will and then let the google know which version we want to use and then redirect the other one to that. Now all the backlinks point to exactly one url and domain authority is not shared (wasted) between many urls

It's a good idea to pick one of those URLs as your preferred (canonical) destination, and use 301 redirects to send traffic from the other URLs to your preferred URL. A server-side 301 redirect is the best way to ensure that users and search engines are directed to the correct page.

We can easily get rid of confusion of Google bot by using Canonical URL for the same product and information page. In this condition when website has same product or services pages and we know that Google hate copied content so, we can easily show that content is unique by using Canonical url for the other page.

the search engine friendly URL that you want the search engines to treat as authoritative. In other words, a canonical URL is the URL that you want visitors to see.

 A canonical URL is the URL that you want visitors to see. Quite often canonical URLs were used to describe the homepage. The typical example used is that most people treat the following URLs as the same:
www.example.com
example.com
www.example.com/index.html
example.com/home.asp
The fact is that these are all different URLs. From a search engine perspective, this can cause a bit of an issue. Hence the idea of canonicalization. Canonicalization is the process of picking the best URL (to present to the search engines) when there are multiple choices available. Typically a search engine, such as Google will attempt to pick the best URL that they feel is the authority for that page. However, sometimes they may in fact select the wrong one. Now let’s suggest that you have product pages that depending on how the user navigated to the pager returns a different URL… same page but different URL, now we have a duplicate content issue. Not to mention the nightmare for interlinking and external link inventories.

Canonical URL is an easy way to handle duplicate contents. If you have same page in different URL's you can specify canonical url in code, so Google knows the original page. You can do the same with 301 redirect, but here page will not need to redirect.
