Athletics Canada has adopted the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP) in 2015. As part of Athletics Canada, all members of PSO are subject to Canada's anti-doping rules, which are administered by the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES). The CADP consists of several components such as in- and out-of-competition testing, education, medical exemptions, and the consequences of doping violations, and is compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code and all international standards.
