CCES seeking feedback from sport community regarding the 2021 WADA Code and Standards

(Ottawa, Ontario – February 26, 2018) – The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has begun a two-year consultation process for the development of the 2021 World Anti-Doping Code and International Standards. The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) will lead the process to provide comments to WADA on behalf of the Canadian sport community. Canadians are invited to submit comments through a survey, during in-person workshops and by email. 

Canadians who have an interest in clean sport are invited to complete the six-section survey, based on the elements of the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP), which includes questions and considerations provided by WADA. 

The survey is aimed at administrators, executives, athletes, and athlete support personnel, representing organizations that have adopted the CADP, including national, multi-, and provincial and territorial sport organizations, U SPORTS and CCAA, as well as registered testing pool, national athlete pool athletes, Canadian Sport Institutes, Sport Canada staff, AthletesCAN members, and professional sport leagues (CFL, CHL). 

The deadline to complete the survey is March 12, 2018.

The CCES will also be conducting half-day workshops with sport organizations across Canada to facilitate meaningful conversations about the current landscape of anti-doping, both domestic and globally. Invitations to workshops will be sent in late February.
