You get them from Google of course...

http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010647.asp

I found them in a few minutes because I know how to look, but I learned how to look by trying to look on my own. Might you not do so too?

For the HP, its probably already installed. just run as root:

Code:
hp-setup
and follow the prompts.

The Canon may be a different story. Look it up at linuxprinting.org

No you got it wrong. The canon model is not listed as a paperweight.
The database is also old
