I would give it a final try on a windows pc to verify that there is something wrong with the printer

Sadly this didn't work, I borrowed a windows laptop from work today but it worked almost straight away.
Thanks for the suggestion though

I have this same issue. All of the "fixes" I read (which apparently work for others) do not work for me.
I've tried installing items from canon's site, I can setup the printer via canon's utilities, I can hit it's web service with my browser, I can print alignment test pages, but it will not add as a wireless printer.
Mine also shows in the list, and claims that software is available direct from Apple. But when it goes to get that software, every attempt fails to find anything to download.
Other other fixes I've found mention verifying settings within the printer (for name and service broadcast options). I verified those settings and had turned it all on as needed. That ensured that it was showing up in the list, but it will not download the drivers. When I choose the option to pick a driver from a list, I see a blank box without any options.
I looked through Apple's lists, thinking that maybe it was no longer supported. However, it is listed as supported for Lion (for printing and scanning, though it doesn't mention anything about wired vs wireless. Just that it should have a driver to download).
Printing via USB works fine, as do test pages (wirelessly) so the printer is fine. Since the message claims that Apple's sites have the needed software, I'm posting my info here, hoping someone has an answer to how to get the printer added via wireless, so that it can be used.
