About the Store

We came to Quebec in May of 2003. Our Montreal store incorporates geothermal energy, radiant heating and cooling, and a natural ventilation system. The store uses at least 50% less energy than conventional retail buildings.

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.

See our Community Contributions programs for details and information on how to apply.

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.
