301 - Search Engines: My page is no longer here, and has permanently relocated to a new page. Please remove it from your index and pass credit into the new page.

Canonical - Search Engines: I have multiple versions of this page (or content), please only index this version. I'll useful others available for people to see, but don't include them inside your index and please pass credit to my preferred page.

A canonical redirect is just for redirecting Google Bot or any other Bot/Crawler without redirecting the user.
A 301 redirect will redirect bots and users to a new page.

Canonical redirects are used for:
Redirecting similar pages into one page to eliminate duplicate content.
Example: An e-commerce store with many pairs of the same shoes in different colours. Descriptions and item content is that same except for the colour. A canonical is useful in telling google that a set of shoes are all the same. All variations are redirected to one colour to "represent" that product in the SERPS.

Canonical issue:- When a website URL say http://yoursite.com is typed in the browser, if doesn't redirect to www.yoursite.com. This problem is canonical issue in SEO. The search engine cannot understand that both the "http://yoursite.com" and "www.yousite.com" are the same.
301 Redirects:- When your page is no longer, and has permanently moved to a new page that time 301 URL redirects the user from the older web page to the new page.
