Mountain Equipment Co-op
Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC) is Canada's leading retailer of outdoor clothing, gear and services for self-propelled activities like hiking, cycling and paddlesports.
At MEC, our aim is to provide quality gear and excellent value.
We also want to minimize our environmental impact, by building products that last. To do this, we take the time to test the materials and products we're developing so they will function and endure. If your gear works season after season then we're really getting somewhere.Work and life balance.
Some companies talk about it, at MEC we live it. After all, our core purpose is to help people achieve the benefit of wilderness-oriented recreation.MEC is led by a group of dedicated professionals who have a passion for the outdoors and a commitment to ensuring members have access to great gear, at a great price.
Anyone can join MEC and become part-owner in the Co-op, by purchasing a $5 lifetime individual membership.
Members are entitled to buy gear and to vote on how MEC is governed. More information about MEC's community grants program is available at http://www.mec.ca/community.
