Sharing a printer between an iMac (with printer driver installed) and a Windows laptop without installing any drivers on the laptop: can it be done?

I have an iMac running OS X Leopard. My sister is using her work laptop. Unfortunately, her company has disallowed (blocked) installation of any new software on the laptop, which includes printer drivers. We need to share the printer between the iMac and the laptop. The iMac, to which the printer is connected, has the printer drivers installed.
Can the printer be shared between the iMac and the laptop without installing any drivers on the laptop?
The printer is a Canon Pixma MP145.
Please tell me this is possible (or any possible alternatives). Any help would be greatly appreciated!
