MEC Vancouver

About the Store

From a humble second floor office on Hastings Street, to the present location which occupies more than half a city block, MEC has long been a significant presence in the outdoor community on the west coast.

Community

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.

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.
