The majority of Canon printers, especially those in the Pixma family, can take photo paper up to 300gsm. This covers nearly the entire range of Canon photo paper.
Canon paper comes in a majority of sizes within this weight range, including 6x4, 10x15 and A4 Canon paper, and most printers take every single one. If you're worried just check your printer specification or manual for a max gsm or size.
Canon has a super simple naming system so you know the kind of paper you're buying.
