Mountain Equipment Company (MEC) provided our initial seed funding and helped build our infrastructure. To strengthen our roots in Canada they continue to sponsor workshops and courses.

MEC is Canada’s go-to place for outdoor gear, know-how and inspiration. Since 1971, MEC has sold exceptional products at fair prices, and people who shop here get one of the best guarantees around. Our business and our products have the smallest possible footprint and we use a portion of every sale to support community and causes we believe in.
