It isn't known when or if there will be camera matching profiles for the model or other Canon models. Adobe has stated such. Frankly, I don't think it is as important as you suggest.

I know, you think you "deserve" your camera matching profiles. Adobe will not commit to when or if those profiles will be made available. "If" they do become available in the future you will know because they will be there. Until then, just use the Adobe profiles that are provided. In my opinion you really are not losing much.

 

In the hope that someday Adobe will provide camera matching profiles, in the meantime you could consider creating various custom default settings incorporating the Adobe profiles. I don't know if you have utilized the color grading tool much, but I have found it to be invaluable. I can see great potential in incorporating it along with other settings in creating various default settings that can go much further than what could be accomplished by having camera matching profiles.

 

Here is a quote from an Adobe administrator, taken from another forum that is monitored much more closely by Adobe adminnistrators and Adobe employees:

Camera Matching Profiles: 

Support for a particular flavor of a camera’s raw file does not necessarily mean that there will be Camera Matching profiles for that camera at the time of raw file support.  It is normal for Camera Matching profiles to follow raw support by one or two releases. In the case of some camera models or camera manufacturers or in the event of major changes in file format by a particular manufacturer, that time may be greatly increased. 

 

Note: Not all cameras will ultimately receive Camera Matching profiles.
