2021 Canadian Anti-Doping Program is now available
The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) has made available the final 2021 Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP) to the Canadian sport community. The 2021 CADP will come into effect on January 1, 2021, ensuring the program’s ongoing compliance with the World Anti-Doping Code (Code).
Canadian national sport organizations must formally adopt the 2021 CADP by December 31, 2020 as a condition of Sport Canada funding.
The 2021 versions of the Code and the CADP are the fourth iterations, of both documents, each of which has been an improvement based on the collective experience of anti-doping agencies around the world. While the majority of the changes focus on improvements to make the rules more effective, the CADP fully incorporates the new Athletes’ Anti-Doping Rights Act and commits to upholding the recommended rights outlined within. The CCES is a staunch supporter of the harmonization of global rules, which ensure a level playing field for our athletes no matter where they compete, and of athletes’ right to compete in clean, fair and ethical sport.
