Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies
There are rollers on both side of the paper passage. If papers are pulled to the right, then the roller on the left must have been damaged or is stuck or it dirty (oiled). Open up the printer's access door. Take a flash-light and pull in a paper while you look inside the passage while you push and pull the paper to check the movement of the rollers. If you could somehow reach the roller on the left, move it manually (you have to do this gently only to verify it's not broken or stuck). If it's stuck, this will clear the obstruction, a piece of paper or thread or a hair could cause this issue. If you find it not damaged or broken, then you have to clean it or you have to clear any obstruction somehow, but you'll need to partially disassemble the machine to do this.
Refer to the picture below, the interior of the printer should look like this and the roller must be more or less similar (pointed arrow) with holder.
If you could do the cleaning and clearing, definitely you'll be able to use it.
It's also possible that one of the gear's tooth is broken and is stuck. There are varieties of gears, smaller or bigger, but if at least one of them is not working, it will affect the others as well. Since the papers are pulled to the right side, I can't blame that it's the gear for now. You'll be able to find out after it's disassembled.
The only thing you can try is cleaning or disassembling. Disassembling a canon printer is tough, not that easy as it has several components and if only a component is lost or misplaced or fitted incorrectly, you'll not be able to reassemble the machine, so you need to be very careful. As per my experience, it's easier to disassemble and reassemble a HP printer than Canon printer.

85% of paper jams are caused by worn rollers . The rubber treads in the rollers wears down, making them smooth, so they won't pick up the paper. Sometimes, they are aged, which also gives them a smoother rounded texture, causing jams. The quick fix is to liven up that roller with a mixture of alcohol and soap. Damp a rag with the solution and wipe the rollers clean with it. That's make them more pliable and the paper jams will cease. If you plan to keep your printer,
Replace the pick-up and feed rollers.
