Yes. On the Mac, as your screen shot shows, it is automatically done for you.

Change to Printer Manages Color, go to that same tab and you will see Canon selected but ColorSync will not be greyed out. It can still switch choices and a profile will appear as well as a dropdown is available to select any installed ICC profile.

I'm guessing that those messages derive from the fact that in Windows you do have to go into the printer driver and turn off Color Management when using Application Manages Color.

Absolutely, but the warning does confuse quite a few people on Macs though! Actually Macs have automatically turned off Color Management (when using Application Color Management) for several years now.

Some more info here:

How difficult would it be for Windows drivers to be updated to work the same way?

Cheers,
