    A canonical tag is used to avoid the duplicate web content issue. It will improve the site SEO. Those are used to describe the home page. Visitors used to see the canonical URL.

    If you've already added canonical tags then no need to add 301 redirect. Canonical tags are more appropriate than 301 redirect. This is the best practice so you can keep them, no need to add 301 redirect.

    A canonical tag is a technique of telling search engines that a specific URL stands for the master copy of a page. Using the canonical tag prevents problems caused by identical or "duplicate" content appearing on multiple URLs.
