The phase diagram of a bilayer heterostructure at integer filling factors was established using the hidden symmetry method. Three phases, namely, ferromagnetic, canted antiferromagnetic (CAP), and spin-singlet, were found. We confirm early results of Das Sarma et al. Each phase violates the SU(4) hidden symmetry and is stabilized by anisotropy interactions. A charged excitation in the bilayer, i.e., a skyrmion, was found and its anisotropic energy gap was calculated. The gap has a prominent minimum in the CAP.
