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.

A canonical URL is used when you have duplicate content due to different URLs when there is a centralized "main" page that should only be counted as the actual page. For example, if you have an e-commerce store and you have something like:

/products/cookieJars?&size=large&productColor=blue

/products/cookieJars?size=medium&productColor=blue

/products/cookieJars?size=large&productColor=green

Each cookie jar parameter creates a different, unique URL and is interpreted as being an entirely different page. If you have optimized content for "Cookie Jars" on the page, each rendition of the URL is going to have this same content and be considered to be duplicate content.

To avoid this issue, we implement a canonical tag on the "/products/cookieJars" page as such:

Code:
<link rel="canonical" href="[your domain]/products/cookieJars" />

For more information on how this works, a quick Google search for "canonical tag seo" should do the trick.

Best regards.
