These are both good places that carry a lot of different papers. I don't know if they do Canon (I own an Epson printer) but they are a good place to start.

holy moly $13.99 for 120 4x6 photo plus at amazon...next best is 18.99 at buy.com, photo pro is $18.04

For the win: they ship free if order is over $25.

240 sheets for $28 is a steal!

If you can, check the thickness and brightness of the paper.

If possible, for glossy photos you should get paper that's at least9mil which equates to approximately62lb weight paper and at least about 90 ISO brightness.

Lighter paper will work but you'll find that it the stiffer the paper the better the look and feel also the brightness factor tend sot make the photos stand out.

The well know brands generally have these minimums. Don't assume "Heavyweight" paper is heavyweight.

Give Costco a try. Their Kirkland brand paper is actually pretty good.

$18.99 for 125 sheets of 8.5x11

And I think it's $13.99 for 300 sheets of 4x6

I sometimes get my paper from Staples (free next day delivery).
