CCES (Canadian Center for Ethics in Sport)

As Canada’s national anti-doping agency, the CCES is responsible for implementing the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP) and offers related services for partners and clients, such as international sport federations and major games.

The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) is an independent, national, not-for-profit organization working for and on behalf of athletes, players, coaches, parents, officials and administrators. We recognize that true sport can make a great difference for individuals, communities and our country. We are committed to working collaboratively to activate a values-based and principle-driven sport system; protecting the integrity of sport from the negative forces of doping and other unethical threats; and advocating for sport that is fair, safe and open to everyone.

As Canada’s national anti-doping agency, the CCES is responsible for implementing the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP) and offers related services for partners and clients, such as international sport federations and major games. 

The CCES also leads initiatives that help individual Canadians and sport organizations to navigate the many issues that threaten to interfere with sport that is fair, safe and open. 

Football Canada has adopted the CADP which means that you can be confident that you are part of a world-class anti-doping program that is designed to protect athletes’ rights and ensure a level playing field. Football Canada’s anti-doping policy reflects and supports the CADP.

While the CCES administers anti-doping for the Canadian sport community, you may also be subject to the rules of your international federation.

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