My guess would be no. It appears to use a proprietary built in engine 
that will need a driver and Canon don't appear to provide drivers for 
Linux for that model. I'd be very surprised if it will work.

I'd recommend you look for a model with good Linux support, preferably 
based upon a Postscript/PCL engine.
