Headquartered in Montreal, Canada, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) promotes and coordinates the worldwide fight against doping in sport. Through this autonomous agency, the Olympic Movement and the world's public authorities have intensified their efforts to keep doping out of sport.

As a member of the WADA Legal Committee, CCES played a key role in the structural development and content of the World Anti-Doping Code.

One of WADA’s most effective activities has been to send independent teams to major games and world championships to observe and report on doping control.  Independent observation and reporting increases athlete and public confidence in the quality of doping control.  CCES staff have been members of WADA Independent Observer teams at Olympic Games, Paralympic Games as well as regional and world championships.

The Sport Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada (SDRCC) is a national, sport-specific alternative dispute resolution organization geared toward resolving conflicts that arise within the Canadian amateur sport community. 

The SDRCC is less costly and resolves conflicts more quickly and efficiently than the traditional judicial court system. Trained and experienced mediators, with a general knowledge of the sport system, make final binding decisions on disputes.

Based on the model used by the international Court of Arbitration for Sport, the SDRCC is composed of an independent arbitration process and a disputes secretariat to administer hearings.
