CCES Testing Program on Hold
(Ottawa, Ontario – March 27, 2020) – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) has placed its doping control testing program on hold until further notice. The CCES made this decision in response to updated government directives intended to minimize the risk of exposure and spread of COVID-19 and the postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Athletes should know that most other countries around the world are also adjusting their anti-doping programs in accordance with their national responses to deal with COVID-19. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is actively monitoring these adjustments. The CCES will continue to update WADA on the adjustments we are taking in Canada.
