Anti-Doping Rule Violation asserted against CIS Player

The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that under the rules of the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP), it has asserted an anti-doping rule violation against Jonathan Fortin, a Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) athlete affiliated with Bishop’s University. The athlete’s urine sample, collected during out-of-competition doping control on March 9, 2016, revealed the presence of Methandienone, a prohibited anabolic agent.

Under the rules of the CADP, the athlete has the right to pursue a hearing to contest CCES’ assertion of a violation. His case remains open until he either waives this right or pursues a hearing. At this point, Mr. Fortin does not have an anti-doping rule violation.

Rule 14.3.1 of the CADP provides the CCES with the authority to publicly disclose the identity of an athlete against whom the CCES has asserted an anti-doping rule violation. The CCES has exercised this authority given Mr. Fortin is eligible for the Canadian Football League’s (CFL) draft on May 10, 2016.
