2015 CADP and 2015 Prohibited List now in effect

(Ottawa, Ontario – January 2, 2015) - The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) would like to inform the Canadian sport community that the 2015 Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP) and the 2015 Prohibited List are now in effect.

“The CCES welcomes the new CADP and Prohibited List,” said Paul Melia, President and CEO of the CCES. “To ensure the fight for clean sport is effective, it is important that anti-doping rules and substance classifications are updated to reflect current threats.”

The CCES worked closely with the Canadian sport community during the creation of the 2015 CADP.

During an extensive consultation period, the CCES released two drafts of the new CADP and hosted a symposium for sport organizations and sport leaders. Throughout each phase of its creation the CCES encouraged comments and feedback from stakeholders.

“The CADP belongs to the entire Canadian sport community and reflects how we want to collectively fight doping in sport,” said Melia. “It includes changes that will improve our ability to deter and detect doping and will ultimately protect not only the health of our athletes, but also the entire Canadian sport community and the stakeholders who share our vision of sport in Canada that is fair, safe and open to everyone.”

The CCES would like to thank everyone who contributed to the creation and implementation of the 2015 CADP.
