You set colour management policies in preferences, which may be toggled on/off from the status bar.
When active you can assign alternative "input" profiles from the Image tab of the Properties window. 

Destination (output) profiles are used for specific printer/inkset/media combinations. 
Higher-end inkjet printer use RGB (output) profiles which can be set from the printer driver.

AFAIK, you're not going to find application of ICC profiles in the printer dialog. This is in Preferences > Color Management.
