(Ottawa, Ontario – February 12, 2013) – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) is reminding athletes, coaches, sport administrators and other sport community members that the window is closing on the public review of the World Anti-Doping Program.
February 15 is the deadline to contribute your views to Canada’s national submission by emailing the CCES at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may prefer to submit comments directly to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) at connect.wada-ama.org before March 1.
The CCES has been leading Canada’s national response to the WADA consultation. During the past year we have collected, consolidated and submitted a wealth of important feedback. This is the last opportunity to comment on international standards, although the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP) will open for consultation in early 2014 to remain compliant.
Canadian athletes will be subject to these new rules when they come into effect in 2015.
The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport is an independent, national, not-for-profit organization. We recognize that true sport can make a great difference for individuals, communities and our country. We are committed to working collaboratively to activate a values-based and principle-driven sport system; protecting the integrity of sport from the negative forces of doping and other unethical threats; and advocating for sport that is fair, safe and open to everyone.
