Anti-Doping Policy

The North Toronto Soccer Club fully supports the anti-doping initiatives of the Canadian Centre for Ethical Sport (CCES) the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP), the CSA, Ontario Soccer and FIFA.

Club coaches and administrators are encouraged to bring the topic of doping and ethical sport into their team conversations and monitor overall behaviours.

The following links offer valuable resources that should be shared and discussed among coaches, players and parents.  The following descriptions are quotations from the listed websites.


The Canadian Centre for Ethical Sport

“Canadians want sport to be ethical and fair for all athletes. The CCES is the custodian of Canada’s anti- doping initiative – working to create an environment that matches the expectations of Canadians.

To contribute to values-based sport for Canadians, and to help level the global playing field, the CCES manages the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP), which is the set of rules that govern doping control in Canada.

Compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code and all international standards, the CADP describes how the program is carried out and details the process of results management. It also sets the education standard for values-based sport in Canada.”

The 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.”

“TheCanadianSoccer Association 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. The Canadian Soccer Association’s anti-doping policy reflects and supports the CADP.” 

FIFA has a clear vision: to keep football free of doping.It is FIFA’s duty to protect players from harm and ensure that footballers can compete on an even playing field. Since FIFA is dealing with ambitious and independent individuals, its anti-doping strategy relies on education and prevention. FIFA respects the dignity and private life of each player who is subject to testing.”
