The CCES completes testing of Team Canada prior to Paralympic Games in PyeongChang

(Ottawa, Ontario – March 8, 2018) – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) has successfully completed its pre-Games testing program and would like to wish all members of Team Canada good luck at the 2018 Winter Paralympic Games in PyeongChang. 

“The CCES has fulfilled its commitment to the Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC) through the delivery of a comprehensive intelligence-based pre-Games testing program for all athletes who will compete for Canada at the Paralympic Games,” says Paul Melia, President and CEO of the CCES.

All 55 nominated Canadian athletes were provided with anti-doping education and a number of anti-doping resources, in addition to the testing program.

“Hard-working, clean athletes have a right to compete on a level playing field. The CCES is proud to collaborate with sport organizations in the fight against doping in an effort to protect the irreplaceable moments that may be lost to doping,” says Melia. 

Congratulations to all Team Canada athletes on their hard work and dedication to clean sport. The CCES encourages all athletes to show support for #MyMoment – a social media campaign created to spread a united call for clean sport, while also drawing attention to anti-doping in PyeongChang. The global campaign highlights the fact that doping can steal irreplaceable moments from athletes and threaten the credibility of sport. See more at
