The Canadian Anti-Doping Program

Canadian Centre for Ethics in SportThe Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) is the custodian of the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP): the set of rules that govern anti-doping in Canada. The CADP consists of several components such as in- and out-of-competition testing, education, medical exemptions, and the consequences of doping violations. The CADP is compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code and all international standards.

Canadian Sport Institute has adopted the CADP which means that you can be confident you are part of a world-class anti-doping program designed to protect athletes’ rights and ensure a level playing field. The Canadian Sport Institute’s anti-doping policy reflects and supports the CADP.
