You can dispute on the CRA's website

You can file a dispute with the Credit Reporting Agency.  No need for long explinations.  A simple letter stating that this not your account and you want it removed from your account is enough for them to contest the debt.  If the collection agency can not prove that you are responsible they have to remove the account.  

Hospitals are notorious for going after next of kin for debts.  You were most likely listed as a contact on her paper work.  This is a tactic they use to get you to get on your daughter to pay her bills. 

Good Luck
