Canon color profiles not showing up in Photoshop

I've been having a problem with my Canon color profiles not showing up under the "Photoshop manages color" drop down for some time.  Sometimes they are there and sometimes they are not.  I don't know if my Mac is hiding them or if it's photoshop or what, but when they were missing, I used to be able to go to printers in system preferences and add another printer and click the canon pro 1000 and it would create another driver (pro 1000 (2)...) and then the profiles would be there. I would have like 6 or 7 Pro 1000s on my Mac.  But now that doesn't even work.  I've deleted the printers and downloaded the drivers again and no luck. Does anyone have any ideas?

"The stock Canon Profiles are hidden and not automatically put into the library>Colorsync>Profiles location which makes profiles available to Affinity for instance.

They must be copied from here: library> printers> Canon> BJPrinter> Resources>  ICCProfiles>  -Then control-click on the printer you use ie. Pro 10 or Pro 100  [that one threw me] and choose in the dropdown menu: show package contents.   From there you see Contents> Resources>   All the profiles appear to be copied and then pasted in correct location:

 Library> Colorsync> Profiles "

Is your Mac an M1 Mac?

Perhaps the info in the above thread about placing ICC profiles in ColorSync folder will resolve the problem.

It is not M1. I’ll look into colorsync.

thank you, but I don't get those options.  The below photo is what I get.  And even if I open the package contents I don't see any profiles in there.  Is there a place to download the Canon paper profiles directly so I can add them to ColorSync?Screen Shot 2022-02-13 at 11.56.04 AM.png

Update* After I open my package contents for my printer, (Pro-1000), this is what I see, and they don't seem to be profiles. None of those folders have any .icc files that I can see.Screen Shot 2022-02-13 at 12.17.24 PM.png

This didn’t work for me—but I completely eradicated all Canon software and library items, hidden and not, and then reinstalled printer. It worked! But I had to remove everything first. 

Thanks - it worked for my problem with new mac operating system
