I recently got a Canon Pro-100 (having used Epson printers in the past), and am having the same problems addressed in this conversation, but I have to admit that I am not sure I know how to do a couple of things that ebiggs suggested at the beginning of this thread: a) "Turn off every bit off control it has. You can do this with the Canon My Printer under the Printer Settings tab. Do you know how?", and b) have PS handle all color settings and color matching.Can you help me get started?
Also, I see references to "Canon My Printer": where do I find that?
FYI, I am on an iMac 2017, retina display, using Phtoshop CC 2018. Thanks so much!

For macOS the printer driver automatically disables printer color control if you select photoshop manages color.
Do you have the IJ Series printer installed and not the Bonjour or AirPrint version?

IDK I am going to assume the IJ version. 7DMK ll, 7 D, 40D, and a 5t Rebel . 10-18 lens, 17-70. 100-400 mm'L' 70-300 Tamron, 18-200 mm Sigma, and another couple, I can't remember !

I'm having this same problem on a PIXMA iP8720 I got yesterday.
I have set Color Matching to None as suggested.
When I print the test image with the strawberries, they're dark like in the original posters example.
I have the TIFF file on my desktop. I right click and select print. In the print preview, it shows the correct color for a fraction of a second before turning dark.
The original post mentioned greens printing dark.
The left is a screen capture of what I'm printing. The right is a picture of it printed.

I have had the same problem, ie prints come out way too dark when I have set it to Photoshop manages color.
I tried with using printer driver to manage color and that solved it for me. It comes out really great so I would suggest you try this first. Turn off Color management in Photoshop and set the driver to manage color, ie Canon Color matching.

When you select Printer manages the printer driver automatically selects the correct paper profile for the selected paper type. When Photoshop manages the user needs to select the correct ICC profile.
If if you only use Canon paper then you should be fine just having printer manage color.
