Ottawa – April 17, 2024 – The Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) and the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) are seeking your feedback on the first draft of the Canadian Program to Prevent Competition Manipulation (CPPCM).

The first draft of the CPPCM has been designed to protect against efforts to improperly impact sport competitions by establishing rules and clearly defining violations. It’s supported by a consistent scheme of education, enforcement, and sanctions that are applicable to all individuals who are subject to the CPPCM. Comprehensive education is an essential component of the CPPCM and all individuals who are subject to the rules will be required to complete online education annually. It’s also fully compliant with the IOC Code on the Prevention of Competition Manipulation. 

At this point in time, the first draft of the CPPCM does not contemplate funding or resources for its implementation. Once final, it will be made available on a voluntary basis for interested sport organizations to adopt through an appropriate funding arrangement. 

We would greatly appreciate your input on the key points outlined in this Explanatory Document.

Comments from the entire Canadian sport community are welcome at any point during the consultation period or through a guided input opportunity, such as the webinars that will be hosted by the CCES and the COC in April. See the CPPCM Consultation Plan for more information.
