OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — The World Anti-Doping Agency is keeping its headquarters in Montreal until at least 2031.

Officials in the federal Transport Department made the announcement Wednesday night.

It came after a proposal put forth to the International Olympic Committee agency in Seoul by Transport Minister Marc Garneau, Quebec International Relations Minister Christine St-Pierre and Yves Bolduc, head of Montreal International.

The province of Quebec and the federal government are promising to contribute a joint amount of $3 million a year to the organization over 10 years.
