Updated Canadian Anti-Doping Rules Coming Into Effect

(Ottawa, Ontario – August 30, 2017) – An updated version of the 2015 Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP) will come into effect on September 1, 2017. The rules of the CADP govern how anti-doping is conducted in Canada and are administered by the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) on behalf of the Canadian sport community.

“The CCES is pleased to share the second version of the 2015 CADP,” said Paul Melia, President and CEO of the CCES. “The CADP serves to protect Canadian athletes and their right to clean sport, in addition to meeting the rigorous international standards of the World Anti-Doping Code.” 

The second version of the 2015 CADP was developed following two years of experience implementing the 2015 CADP and a consultation period with the Canadian sport community. The CCES sought to collect feedback from its stakeholders in the sport community, such as national and multi-sport organizations.

“We are grateful for everyone who took the time to share their opinions and experience regarding the 2015 CADP,” said Melia. “Contributions from stakeholders help ensure that the CADP evolves to meet the needs of Canadian sport.”

The CCES is an independent, national, not-for profit organization with a responsibility to administer the CADP. 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.
