Current Suspensions

 

The pursuit of doping-free sport is a matter of public interest. The CPU is committed to eradicating the use of performance enhancing drugs from powerlifting in Canada. As such, all members of the CPU, by virtue of membership, are agreeing to submit to periodic drug testing, either at a sanctioned CPU contest, or on a "no notice" out of competition basis.

The CPU also follows the guidelines of the Canadian Anti-Doping Program. The CADP 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, including penalties for infractions.

 

The CPU is also committed to ensuring a safe and positive environment (within the CPU's programs, activities, and events) by making Individuals aware that there is an expectation, at all times, of appropriate behaviour consistent with the CPU's core values. The CPU supports equal opportunity, prohibits discriminatory practices, and is committed to providing an environment in which all individuals are treated with respect.     

 

An Individual who violates this Code may be subject to sanctions pursuant to the CPU's Discipline and Complaints Policy. In addition to facing possible sanction pursuant to the CPU's Discipline and Complaints Policy, an Individual who violates this Code during a competition may be removed from the competition, the official may delay the competition until the Individual complies with the removal, and the Individual may be subject to any additional discipline associated with the particular competition.
