Hi Kevin. I guess it depends on 2 things, what you want to use the camera for & what's your budget. If you intend on only using the camera for special occassions, check Craigslists for a cheap lens. If the camera is going to be something you take everywhere you go, set your maximum budget & go from there.
I have a Canon T1i I take with me everywhere, it's always with me. I recently got a used Sigma 18-50mm lens. One of the best things I've ever done. The lens is brilliant. Very sharp, nice color saturation, great tone range. In comparison, it's just as good as any of Canons lenses I have but at a fraction of the price. Sigma from now on :) Heres a link to my local camera store and the next lens I'm going to buy that will be my go everywhere lens: http://www.henrys.com/58450-SIGMA-OS-17-70MM-DC-2-8-4-CANON-HSM-LENS.aspx Nice zoom range, fast, has stabilization, can do macro & doesn't break the bank.

From a general photography standpoint, I would suggest exactly what Brian said, a good affordable lens with a nice wide angle to decent zoom is always a good place to start. I'd also suggest that if you are going to do detail work or portraits that you look at a 50mm lens, and for more wide angle shots, find something in the 28mm range. A nice 50mm with a really big depth of field can be had for $100-200 new and under that used if you dig around online. I think my fixed 50mm was easily my best purchase.

I am not a Canon user but my advice would be to purchase a 50mm equivalent lens which, based on the assumption that the aforementioned camera is an APS-C sensor, would be a 35mm. This would give you an approximate normal field of view.
