After extensive consultation, the International Paralympic Committee has published the final version of the 2015 IPC Athlete Classification Code.

The Canadian Paralympic Committee was actively involved in consultation of the new code and endorses the new code and the five international standards as a key step forward for the development of the Paralympic movement.

The Canadian Paralympic Committee will now work with all NSOs and the broader parasport community to ensure a national strategy is implemented successfully before the code compliance deadline of January 1, 2017.
