Maybe the battery of your camera is wet. Try to quickly dry your camera's battery in sunlight and then put the whole camera ( excluding battery ) in sunlight. This may work as the moisture in your camera would dry out and chances are there that it may start working.
If you had immediately fished it out, removed the batteries, and let it dry thoroughly before even attempting to turn it on again, then the camera MAY work again. If you had left the batteries in or tried to turn it on again while wet, your chances are much less. If your camera doesn't turn on after it's dried out, then you have to either replace or repair it. Given repair costs and the expected life cycle of digital cameras, it's probably more economical to replace it with a newer model. Of course, since you neglected to specify the model of your Canon camera, I can't make that decision for you.
Bob, Your camera may stop working very soon as corrosion begins. You should place all parts that got wet in a pillow case and put in a large container of dry, uncooked rice for a day or two (or longer). The rice will will draw out the moisture from all the affected parts.
Next, you'll need to do a "wet cleaning" of the sensor. This is not for the faint of heart - but can be done at a camera shop for under $100 if you'd rather have them do it. I'd wait a couple of weeks before doing that - as the camera may fail as a result of the corrosion I mentioned earlier. It doesn't make sense to drop $100 into a broken camera - right?
The lens will need a thorough cleaning - but may be better / cheaper to buy a replacement. This is not an "end user" job - it will need to be sent out - but consulting a local camera shop first would be best.

If you tried turning the camera on while the electronics were still wet, it may be too late to offer any help.
Assuming you do this again, any piece of electronics that is immersed in water may begin to corrode immediately upon exposure to air, and if you don't want to take the chance of corrosion, you should take your camera to a professional repair depot.
Without disassembling the camera and drying out the pieces manually, there's nothing you can do except open every available crevice (lense, battery area, CF memory slot), remove the battery and memory card (which can then be dried CAREFULLY by hand), and hope that all pieces of the camera will eventually dry out (I'd leave it in a dry, warm environment for at least 3-4 days - longer if you can wait).
