MEC Halifax

About the Store

MEC reached the shores of the Atlantic in 2001, when we celebrated the opening of our Halifax store. To minimize the store's environmental impact, most of the existing building was preserved and the use of new materials limited.

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.

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.
