Canadian Anti-Doping Program
Wrestling Canada Lutte (WCL) has adopted the 2021 Canadian Anti-Doping Policy (CADP), as its primary domestic anti-doping policy. Administered on behalf of WCL by the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES), the 2021 CADP is fully compliant with the 2021 World Anti-Doping Code, International Standards and Guidelines as they may exist from time to time. To view or download the 2021 CADP, please visit: https://cces.ca/canadian-anti-doping-program.
In addition, WCL, as a member federation of United World Wrestling (UWW) must also be fully compliant with UWW’s anti-doping rules. UWW may apply to certain members of Wrestling Canada Lutte in certain situations. UWW anti-doping rules are fully compliant with the 2021 World Anti-Doping Code, International Standards and Guidelines as they may exist from time to time.

In the event of a conflict between other anti-doping policies established by WCL and the 2021 CADP and/or UWW anti-doping rules, the rules of the 2021 CADP or UWW shall prevail, as applicable.
Canadian Anti-Doping Program
As a member of WCL, or as a participant in wrestling, the CADP applies to you. It is important to know that by participating in activities sanctioned by WCL, you are subject to the CADP, and accordingly, may be selected for doping control.
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.
WCL 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. WCL’s anti-doping policy and code of conduct reflect and support the CADP.
While the CCES administers anti-doping for the Canadian sport community, you may also be subject to the rules of UWW.
The CCES recommends that athletes take the following actions to ensure they don’t commit an inadvertent anti-doping rule violation:
