Ok, just a couple of questions, I assume the printer worked before so what changed? Did you update your Operating System or what? Usually printers dont stop working unless they are broken or something changes on the computer that's running them.

Only download drivers from the Canon web site, nowhere else. Other sites that advertise universal drivers and downloads are setup to scam you for money and the drivers they supply are the same you can get for free from the manufacturer's site.

As suggested use the Canon drivers download site.

Just like to remind you all that the "normal" way to get print drivers now is to use Software update to get new drivers or, when you Add in Print & Scan, OS X auto-downloads the driver from Apple servers:
OS X: Printer and scanner software available for download - Apple Support

HP is one manufacturer who reminds us of that:
