2021 World Anti-Doping Code Review

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is working through a two-year, three-phase stakeholder consultation process for the development of the 2021 World Anti-Doping Code (Code), International Standards and the new Anti-Doping Charter of Athlete Rights (Charter). The CCES is leading the process to provide comments to WADA on behalf of the Canadian sport community. This process ensures that the sport community has an opportunity to provide feedback regarding the anti-doping rules and issues that impact them and to advocate for change.
