Participants must be aware that doping control tests may be conducted by the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) in accordance with the Canadian Anti-Doping Program. To avoid an inadvertent positive test and the consequences of an anti-doping rule violation, athletes are encouraged to take the following steps:
- Check the Global DRO to determine if any prescription or over-the-counter medications or treatments that are banned by the WADA Prohibited List.
- Review medical exemption requirements if you require the use of a banned medication for a legitimate medical reason.
- Do not use supplements, or take precautions prior to doing so. Supplement products cannot be verified by the CCES or in the Global DRO. A lack of industry and government regulation makes it impossible to confirm their ingredients. Read more: Supplements
- Review the steps of the doping control sample collection procedures
