Team Canada athletes can prepare with key information on Pan Am and Parapan Am anti-doping program

(Ottawa, Ontario – July 3, 2015) – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) would like to direct Team Canada athletes and their support personnel to important anti-doping information and resources to help them prepare for the Toronto 2015 Pan Am and Parapan Am Games (TO2015).

Located on the TO2015 website, the anti-doping webpage includes: information about the doping control process, an online learning course, a medication database, therapeutic use exemptions (TUEs) information, and an inspiring video titled “Pee is Gold.” Pan Am and Parapan Am athletes are encouraged to visit www.toronto2015.org/anti-doping to learn about their anti-doping requirements.

The CCES would also like to remind athletes of the fundamental anti-doping principle of strict liability: The athlete is responsible for any substance found in his or her sample.

Congratulations to all Team Canada athletes on their hard work and dedication to clean sport.

The CCES is an independent, national, not-for profit organization with a responsibility to administer the CADP. Under the CADP rules, the CCES announces publicly every anti-doping rule violation. We recognize that true sport can make a great difference for individuals, communities and our country. The CCES acknowledges funding, in part, from the Government of Canada. 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.
