The RC-6 is recommended, as a wireless control of a simple type, appropriate for your Canon camera:

which is about $10 or $11... then there's also this source, for $21-odd:

There's also this source for a remote, the same model (RC-6, recommended for use with your camera):

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Canon-RC-6-Remote-Control/23142357?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=0&adid=22222222227016673092&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=54123438671&wl4=pla-89001938711&wl5=9053018&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=8175035&wl11=online&wl12=23142357&wl13=&veh=sem

Or if you prefer a control that isn't wireless, but has a cable to the camera, and which has other functions too aside from being a simple shutter-remote-control, there's this:
