Orienteering & Anti-Doping

Orienteering Canada is committed to building drug-free sport and is unequivocally opposed, on ethical, medical, and legal grounds, to the practice of doping in sport. Orienteering Canada fully supports the position of Sport Canada and the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) against the use of banned substances and methods.

The 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.

Orienteering Canada endorses and has adopted the CADP, which means orienteering is part of a world-class anti-doping program that is designed to protect athletes’ rights and ensure a level playing field. Orienteering Canada’s anti-doping policy reflects and supports the CADP in that no athlete, official, coach or volunteer shall take prohibited substances, nor should any team official or parent recommend or condone the use of prohibited substances.

Orienteering Canada expects all members of the orienteering community to abide by CADP to preserve the integrity of sport. Any sanction by the CCES shall be enforced by Orienteering Canada.

Canadian Anti-Doping Program

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.

Orienteering 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 the International Orienteering Federation’s Anti-Doping policies and procedures.
