Canadian Anti-Doping Program:
The Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP) is generally considered to be one of the most thorough and comprehensive doping control policies in the world. By operating on the basis of a collective agreement within the sport, the policy provides for a truly independent, transparent and cost-effective anti-doping system. It also provides the procedural fairness and protects the athletes’ rights throughout the process.
Benefits to Athletics Canada and its Members:
- Independent, transparent system provides the athletes and the public, confidence in Athletics Canada and our anti-doping policy.
- When all (majority) sports adopt the policy, it reduces our liability. The CADP serves as a shield against legal challenges to individual National Sport Organizations (NSO).
- The CADP and more specifically, the Standard Operating Procedures have not had any successful legal challenges.
- All testing services, laboratory analysis, result management and the administration of procedural fairness are all paid for by the Federal Government and the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport when Athletics Canada becomes part of the system by adopting the CADP.
Athletics Canada has adopted the 2015 Canadian Anti-Doping Program as the anti-doping policy and regulations of the organization.
