Check in your word processing program to see where the print job is being sent. I suspect it may not be set for the printer you think you are sending it to.

Look in Devices and Printers to see if there are multiple listings for the Canon MG 5520. If so, remove all of them, close Devices and Printers, and reboot. Windows should re-install the printer automatically.

Also check your document for font color. Then check the print preferences from within the document program (Word, etc) to see if there is a default accidentally set to print white to white or whatever background color (in this case, white paper).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

You may also have an empty ink cartridge. That model uses five different cartridges to print. The four # 251 cartridges are for printing color and pictures. The 5th # 250 cartridge is for printing black text. Your # 250 cartridge may be empty.
