The International Anti-Doping unit works in close collaboration with a number of key partners including:
Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES)
The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport is the organization responsible for the administration of the Canadian Anti-Doping Program and works closely with the International Anti-Doping unit in exercising international leadership in advancing a drug-free, fair and ethical environment for sport.
World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)
Canada assists the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) in its efforts to gain worldwide harmonization of anti-doping polices and programs. Its efforts are aimed at acceptance and implementation of the principles of the World Anti-Doping Program, particularly the World Anti-Doping Code. WADA's global headquarters are based in Montreal, Quebec. The Minister for Sport for Canada participates in WADA Executive Meetings as Chair of the WADA Ethics and Education Committee, and is one of four representatives of the Americas on the WADA Foundation Board.
Canadian Richard Pound is WADA Chair, and Charmaine Crooks, a Canadian member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Athletes Commission, sits on the Foundation Board. As well, Canada is represented on WADA's Committees (Dr. Andrew Pipe, Prohibited List Sub-Committee; Dr. Sue Neill, Finance and Administration; Chairmaine Crooks, Ethics and Education; Joe de Pencier, Legal Committee, and Becky Scott, Athletes' Committee).
