MEC Calgary

About the Store

The Calgary store established an initial presence with a U-Haul trailer full of gear driven out from Vancouver. Initial digs were minimal – a cramped office space above a record store – a far cry from the present location, which is a veritable palace of outdoor gear.

Grants, Support, and Product Donations

MEC supports grassroots organizations and their efforts to conserve ecologically and recreationally important places and to inspire and enable Canadians to be active outdoors. Through our Community Contributions program MEC donates gear, funding and in-kind support, helping us all keep space for adventure.

Display Space

Not-for-profit groups that have similar values to MEC can use our floor space free of charge to educate the public about current environmental or outdoor issues, or to collect public input regarding future park or government initiatives. Local clubs can also spend time here, letting people know they exist and what they have to offer.

Community Meeting Room

Our meeting room can accommodate small groups, and is available to local outdoor clubs, ENGOs, or NGOs that have a similar mandate as MEC.

We have audio visual equipment (not including laptop computers), white boards, and flip charts. Use of our space is free. If interested, please email our outreach coordinator at least a month in advance of your event.

Seminars and Store Tours

We offer free presentations and informational store tours to interested student groups, outdoor organizations, environmental organizations, or business. Topics range learning about outdoor gear and trip planning to corporate responsibility and environmental sustainability practices.
