You’re also part of something bigger
We believe in getting outside, being active, and making good things happen along the way. Everything we make, buy, sell or touch has an impact. We find ways to stretch our limits and stay accountable for what we do.
The outdoors gives us so much, so we’re giving back. This year, MEC is donating 1$ million to Canadian organizations that teach outdoor skills, protect wild spaces and grow the communities of people getting active outside. Meet our Outdoor Impact partners
Our business and our products set standards for social responsibility and have the smallest possible footprint. We aim to have at least one environmental or social responsibility feature in each MEC Label product by 2025 and we’re 85% of the way there. Learn about our sustainability goals
