Canon has issued a new version of their printing driver (3.30), that
includes now a network backend (cnijnet) additionally to the classic usb
Also, the scangear package seems to include code for network scanners
Try to run scangear (or scangearmp), this is the main frontend provided

This Linux software from Canon is developed by the Canon-asia teams, and
each worldwide Canon region is autonomous to propose its own product
