    Open one page of a website with different urls is a canonical issue. Like www non www urls are canonical issues.

    Canonicalization is the process of picking the best url when there are several choices.
    -www.example.com
    -example.com/
    -www.example.com/index.html
    -example.com/home.asp
    All the above URLs are technically different and will return different content for different URLs. All you need to decide is your preferred URL choice and let Google know about it.

    One of the method to avoid canonical issue:
    Use attribute rel="canonical" in the link tag and set your preferred url in the tag.

    One of the most important features of canonical attribute is to avoid duplicated content in a given website.
    It is really important to be considered good by google

    Canonical Issue means that your website is opening with more than one URL.

    It is about www and non www urls, mean there are some website who open with www and with non www extension and if you not fix this problem then its mean that your website's page rank is dividing and search engine consider these page as two pages there you should fix this problem.
