Challenges shape us
We are all members
We share a love for vital, restorative outdoor spaces. Help ensure trails are there for us when we head outside.
Relief funds for outdoor partners
For more than three decades, MEC has given back to the community of trail keepers who protect and provide access to outdoor spaces. The MEC Outdoor Partner Relief Fund is a way for members to support these organizations through a short-term funding and staffing crunch. If you can, consider donating to support trail networks across the country. Our love for trails abides, but this funding drive wraps up on July 19.

$125,000 raised for the Canadian Red Cross
We’re staying safe and the masks are now sold out. Thanks for helping to protect and care for each other. All profits from the sale of our MEC-designed masks are being donated to the Canadian Red Cross.
Healthcare professionals asked,we answered
We’re donating needed equipment to ease the strain on frontline workers.
Staff in hospitals in cities across Canada received thousands of Chaos tubular headbands, something that prevents skin irritations and blisters when wearing personal protective equipment for long periods.
Duffle bags for midwives
As expectant mothers seek alternatives to hospital births, midwives are in high demand. UBC’s Midwifery program was looking for an easy-to-clean bag to transport midwifery equipment and supplies. All students attending the program received an MEC Outpost Duffle.
Nuun hydration tablets
To help keep frontline workers hydrated through long shifts, MEC and Nuun donated and distributed almost 15,000 tablets to hospitals across BC and Ontario.
From our CEO
A shared love of hikes, fresh air, bike trails and adventure connects us, and we can be proud of the positive impact we make together.
