Canadian Anti-Doping Program

Keep our sport safe and fair

The Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP) helps keep our sport safe and fair. It is a world-class program that is designed to protect athletes’ rights and ensure a level playing field.

The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) is the custodian of the CADP, which governs anti-doping in Canada.

How the CADP promotes clean sport

The CADP is responsible for many anti-doping measures such as:

  • Ensuring in- and out-of-competition testing is implemented.
  • Providing athletes with educational materials about the CADP.
  • Assisting with medical exemptions for athletes with medical conditions.
  • Outlining consequences of doping violations.
  • Providing support for organizations implementing the CADP.
  • Processing anti-doping rule violations.

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

Doping control recommendations
