Revisions made to Clause 4 of the Athlete Contract in the 2015 CADP

(Ottawa, Ontario – October 23, 2014) - The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) wishes to inform the Canadian sport community of a change that has been made to language contained within the 2015 Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP) Adoption Contract. Revisions have been made to Clause 4 of the Athlete Contract, contained within Appendix B of the Adoption Contract. The wording has been revised to provide more detail with regards to the “third parties” originally referenced and to clarify the meaning of “personal information.”

The revised wording for Clause 4 is as follows: “I consent to having police and law enforcement agencies, border services agencies, sport organizations of which I am a member and sporting clubs and athletic associations to which I belong, in Canada and elsewhere, disclose my personal information to the CCES to assist the CCES in the enforcement of the CADP. For the purpose of this consent, the term ‘personal information’ means information relating to an identifiable individual that is recorded in any form.”

The updated Adoption Contract, along with a frequently asked questions (FAQ) document related to Clause 4 and information sharing, is available at
