How to I scan a paper onto my computer with MG 3222, using a Mac OS?

I am having trouble figuring out how to scan then upload a paper using my MG 3222 scanner printer combo.  I looked for a program on my computer but the only things I found were the system configuration programs for my printer.

Hi amfarrell77,
There is a program that comes with the printer called the IJ Scan Utility that can assist you with scanning.  To scan using the IJ Scan Utlity, please follow these steps:
1.  Place the documents on the platen glass of the printer.
2.  Start IJ Scan Utility by going to the Go menu of Finder, selecting Applications, then double-clicking the Canon Utilities folder, IJ Scan Utility folder, then Canon IJ Scan Utility icon to start IJ Scan Utility.
3.  In the Canon IJ Scan Utility window that opens, click SETTINGS.... in the bottom right of the window.  The Settings dialog box appears.
4.  Click the DOCUMENT SCAN option on the left pane of the window, then set the item size, resolution, etc. as required.
5.  In the SAVE SETTINGS section of the window, you will select the save format and location of the document you are about to scan.
    a.)  In the FILE NAME field, specify the name you would like to give the file.  By default the filename will begin with IMG; you can remove IMG and change it to whatever you would like to name the file.
    b.)  In the DATA FORMAT field, use the drop-down arrow to select the option that is relevant to the type of document you want to scan.  
    c.)  In the SAVE IN field, please navigate to the area where you would like the file to be saved once it is scanned in.  By default, the file will be saved in the DOCUMENTS folder.
6.  Once all settings have been selected, click the OK button at the bottom of the SETTINGS (DOCUMENT SCAN) window.  The IJ Scan Utility main screen appears.
7.  Click the DOCUMENT button.  Scanning starts.  Click the CANCEL button to cancel scanning if needed.  Scanned images and documents are saved in the previously selected folder location specified in the SETTINGS... window.
Hope this helps!
