Major Games Services

As a condition of hosting major games, host societies must deliver a sound anti-doping operation. 

The CCES will assist Major Games host societies with the planning and implementation of their anti-doping programs, including:

  • Bid preparation
  • Planning and management
  • Program staffing
  • Development of work plans
  • Budgeting
  • Assessment of technical bid requirements for laboratory consideration
  • Supplies and inventory control
  • On-site operations
  • Doping control personnel (doping control officers, blood collection officers, chaperones)
  • Post event follow up and reporting as required

“The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) acted as a contracted service provider to the TO2015 Organizing Committee through the planning and delivery of the anti-doping program for the Games. Using an intelligence based approach to the design of the TO2015 anti-doping program, the CCES incorporated sample collection personnel training, test distribution planning, development of educational anti-doping resources, and laboratory requirements to ensure a robust and compliant anti-doping program with the World Anti-Doping Code. The experience of CCES office staff and doping control officers demonstrated a high level of expertise in meeting the operational and budgetary requirements of the TO2015 Organizing Committee, as well as its partners and stakeholders. Future Organizing Committees should consider the CCES as a world leader in the design and implementation of major games anti-doping programs.”

Bob O’Doherty, Senior Vice President, Sport and Venues TO2015 Organizing Committee
