Dear Athletes,

The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) has a vision of sport in Canada that is fair, safe and open to everyone. To reach this goal, we continually explore how to enrich and strengthen our messaging through our education programs and sport community engagement. To this end, we aim to place athlete experiences at the centre of our messaging.

We consider your experiences invaluable in educating the next generation of Canadian athletes. We would like this cohort of athletes to make connections with and understand the importance of taking a values-based approach to sport and competing clean. To help us provide engaging and meaningful education resources, we are asking for recently retired athletes (within the last 10 years) to create personal video testimonials framed around our key messages. We plan to incorporate these video testimonials into our education and communications resources, such as e-learning courses, presentations, social media and online materials.

What is involved?

  • Athletes create brief video testimonials about three or four topics related to clean sport and the importance of values-based sport by responding to prompts supplied by the CCES.
  • The CCES will provide speaking prompts, tips to help frame your messages, and guidelines for filming the videos.

How can you indicate your interest?

  • Athletes can submit an expression of interest through the online application form.
  • The CCES will review applications then follow up with selected athletes to provide additional instructions.

Our goal is to ensure participation of athletes in a variety of sports, in both French and English. Selected participants will receive an honorarium of $350.00 upon submission of their video(s).

Thank you for considering this opportunity. If you are interested in sharing your thoughts and experiences regarding the importance of clean sport with other Canadian athletes, please consider contributing to this initiative. If you have any questions, please email
