The athlete biological passport (ABP) is an innovative advancement in the fight against doping. In close cooperation with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and our Canadian sport partners, the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) has begun implementing the ABP in Canada.

The passport is a turning point in the fight against doping. It is part of the continuous effort to eliminate doping from Canadian sport.

What is new about this approach to anti-doping is that:

  • It draws upon important new scientific methods of indirect detection.
  • It uses sophisticated statistical tools to interpret results.
  • It uses a sequence of tests to provide a longitudinal profile thus creating for each athlete a specific  reference range for biological variables in urine and blood.
