With reference to this link.

Please follow the steps.

– Go to the category page you want to change canonical URL in Magento Admin

– Click the tab “Custom Design”

– In the Custom Layout Update textbox, paste this:

<reference name="head">
    <action method="removeItem" block="head">
    <action method="addLinkRel" translate="title">

Change the URL with your URL and it will be working.

Happy Coding. :)
