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:
