Giving back to the outdoors

We believe the outdoors changes lives. Being active outside challenges us, recharges us, makes us better humans. We want to help more people feel the impact of the outdoors – so we’re giving back.

In 2021, MEC is donating $1 million to Canadian outdoor organizations to:

  • Teach outdoor skills
  • Protect wild spaces
  • Grow the communities of people getting active outside

Learn about our Outdoor Impact partners below. Funding from MEC is supporting groups across Canada with avalanche safety training, outdoor programs for youth, conserving wilderness, and lots more.
