With over 5M members across Canada, 1 in 8 adult Canadians is a MEC member. We design and curate product to help our members stay excited and prepared for the outdoors, even during the coldest winter months. Our 45 years of outdoor experience informs our material choices, designs and product testing, whether paddle or parka. We’re also leading the industry in sustainable manufacturing. We're the only Canadian-based organization with Fair Trade apparel, ethical down and wool, along with third party monitoring by Bluesign, ensuring our high manufacturing standards are met. MEC is more than just a place to buy gear – it’s a community hub too. Our experts regularly host events including running meet ups, bike maintenance clinics and winter camping safety 101s.
