Anti-Doping - The Canadian Anti-Doping Program

The Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP) can be downloaded or consulted online.

The 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.

The CCES recommends that athletes take the following actions to ensure they don’t commit an inadvertent anti-doping rule violation:
