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 Community Investment program has given tens of millions of dollars to conservation and the outdoor community in Canada. Every purchase helps conserve the places where we play and support all Canadians getting active outside. Find out if your community project is eligible and how to apply for support.
Free meeting room
It’s small, but it does the trick. Available for use by local outdoor clubs, environmental groups and NGOs that have a similar mandate as MEC. Please email at least a month before your event to reserve the space.
