Doping Control & Regulations

The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) is the custodian of the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP); the set of rules that govern anti-doping in Canada. The CADP consists of several components such as in- and out-of-competition testing, education, medical exemptions, and the consequences of doping violations. The CADP is compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code and all international standards.

Biathlon 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.

While the CCES administers anti-doping for the Canadian sport community, you may also be subject to the rules of your international federation. Learn more about IBU’s anti-doping policies and procedures.

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