I'm facing similar issues, as our networked Xante printers aren't listed 
either. My solution was to simply use the "Generic Postscript" driver, 
and that works fine for me. I recommend you to try this as well, unless 
Canon provides proper Linux drivers which can be installed (dunno how to 
add 'em to CUPS, as I've not yet have to do so).
If your printer is a very new model, perhaps in a future update of CUPS 
it will be featured, so I'd keep checking the printer drivers after CUPS
