File a "personal statement" with the CRA

thats the first step. 

Follow up with a "Validation Letter"  with the Credit Reporting agency, This will require the landloard to prove that you signed the lease and were in fact responsible for the debt.  If they can't they will have to remove it from your report.

Check out  creditinfocenter.com for templates and more info on these two items.  

Good luck
