Installing on a new iMac

I have a Pixma MX922 that I'm currently using on an iMac running OSX El Capitan. Im using the printer on wifi. I'm getting a new iMac that will have macOS Sierra. I already downloaded the CUPS driver for the new operating system from Canon's site, and put the driver on a flash drive.

 

How do I install the MX922 on the new iMac?  I want to continue using wifi, and NOT hook the printer up directly to the computer.  Do I install the new driver before turning the printer power on?  What is the sequence of events I should use?  At what point, if any, do I go into the iMac System Preferences for printers and click the "+" sign?

Thanks, Patrick. I'm assuming that I can skip all the steps that put the printer on the wireless network, since it already is?

Hi jla930,

 

Yes, if it is already connected, you can skip those steps.
