DECLARATION FORMS & WAIVERS
As you know, the world pandemic has caused a series of changes on the way we now live and work.
Sport has not been spared. In some areas of the country, the government authorities have lifted or modified the confinement measures and are at a point where athletes and coaches can start going back to training in a safe and responsible way.
Part of the return to sport protocol includes ensuring that risks are managed — risks to both our participants and to our sport organizations. We have now updated our waivers and forms and introduced a new declaration of compliance document, to make sure everyone is aware of the risks of communicable diseases and returning to the sport of diving. These documents must be signed before returning to sport. This new reality affects all sports in Canada, not just diving.
As DPC manages the insurance program on behalf of the provincial diving organizations (except for Quebec), we have been working with the insurance company and our legal counsel to develop the updated forms located at the links below.
- The Declaration of compliance COVID-19 form for all individuals attending the facility and a program.
- The Waiverfor all participants older than the age of majority.
- The Assumption of Risk agreement for all parent/guardians of participants who are younger than the age of majority.

If you have any questions, please contact your provincial office.

FORMS AND DOCUMENTS
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.
The Canadian Amateur Diving 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. CADA’s anti-doping policy reflects and supports the CADP. See our policy on anti-doping.
While the CCES administers anti-doping for the Canadian sport community, you may also be subject to the rules of your international federation. Learn more about FINA’s anti-doping policies and procedures.
- The CCES recommends that athletes take the following actions to ensure they don’t commit an inadvertent anti-doping rule violation:
- Know your rights and responsibilities as an athlete with regard to anti-doping.
- Always comply with a testing request if you are notified for doping control.
- Check all medications and products before taking them to ensure they do not contain ingredients that are banned.
- Verify your medical exemption requirements.
- Do not take supplements, but if you do, take steps to minimize your risk.
- Get the latest news. Sign up to receive CCES media releases and advisory notes.
