Canonical tagging is nothing but adding a HTML element is to the section of an html page. This helps Google to identify duplicate content by specifying word "Canonical", Google will identify what is preferred version (URL) of the page. It is supported by Yahoo & Bing as-well

A canonical URL lets you tell search engines that certain similar URLs are actually the same. Sometimes you have products or content that can be found on multiple URLs – or even multiple websites, but by using canonical URLs (HTML link tags with the attribute rel=canonical), you can have these on your site without harming your rankings.  The rel=canonical element, often called the “canonical link”, is an HTML element that helps webmasters prevent duplicate content issues. It does this by specifying the “canonical URL”, the “preferred” version of a web page – the original source, even. Using it well improves a site's SEO
