Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

There is no official software from Canon available for your printer and Yosemite. However, Apple drivers are available. Go to this website --> https://support.apple.com/kb/dl1742?locale=en_GB

Click Download, open the downloaded file and install it. Once you did that, go to Apple > System Preferences > Printers and Scanners. Connect the printer with USB cable. Then click plus button and add your printer.

Please let me know if that didn't work, so I will continue to help you until we fix the problem

Note : This is not my final answer. I strive to provide Excellent service or 5 star service. If you feel you've received anything less or if you are not satisfied or if my solutions didn't work, please don't rate me bad or poor or ok as it will badly affect my job here. Instead, please let me know and I will try my best to help you until you are fully satisfied or the issue is resolved.
