It is not that hard to do. All the ICC files are packed in the DPP 
installation file. Once you have extracted this files (most likely by 
installation) you have to pick the right one. Sadly Canon choosed to 
name the files by numbers which do not match any logic relation to the 
camera model name. But there are web sites out there which bring these 
relation i.e.

But these files can only give you a approximate profile. Best is to 
buy a IT8 target (about 10-20 Euro) and take a photo of it under 
cloudy daylight. With this picture (and the famous argyllcms) you can 
create a exact ICC profile of your camera.
