MIG is a consumer product. It’s very likely it only works with Canon paper.

This is correct. MIG doesn't allow others ICC profiles. In the case you have a PRO series printer though, Print Studio Pro allows you to print using ICC profiles installed on your computer.

That is correct. I have a Pixma Pro-100 and use more third party paper than Canon paper. 

 

But, in order to do that you need to have software that allows you to choose the software to manage color (like Lightroom, Photoshop and many other advanced software products). 

 

If if you want to use  lab paper with MIG you can select the media type recommended by Moab for the paper and see how well the corresponding Canon profile works. 

 

Since you are using MIG I suspect you are printing a project of some sort and precise color matching may not be critical. Thus the Canon profile may be adequate. Give it a try.
