Your local MEC store is more than just a place to get gear – it’s a hub for your outdoor community.
Join a meet-up group, sign up for a ride or race, and learn from experts at in-store clinics. Find MEC events near you to run, bike or gain new skills. Our events are low cost (or even free) with a fun vibe and friendly people.
Grants and donations
Our grant program has given tens of millions of dollars to conservation and the outdoor community in Canada – everything from product donations and advocacy projects to activity funding and land acquisitions. Find out if your community project is eligible and how to apply for support.
Free display space
Not-for-profit groups and local clubs that share MEC values can use our floor space to tell people what’s going on. Let people know about outdoor issues, collect input on plans, or just get the word out about your club. For more info, please email email@example.com or phone the store.
