To thank you for your service, we’d like to offer you and your family a 15% discount on just about anything* we sell. This appreciation discount program is available to current, active Canadian Armed Forces. This program is intended to support those who, by the nature of their current profession, are critical to our Co-op and our purpose.
The discount is intended for those who play a vital role in MEC’s outdoor community, the neighborhoods we serve, and in the communities where our members and staff live, work and recreate. Adding Canadian Armed Forces to our appreciation discount program is our way of thanking these brave people for their dedication to public safety and for being a critical part of our membership and community.
Visit any MEC store with your CAF ID, CFOne or Veterans card and photo ID, or call us at 1 (888) 847-0770. Not an MEC member? A lifetime membership is $5, the same since 1971.
