Mountain Equipment Co-op

Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC) has partnered with the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC). Together, the partners are inviting Canadians to take a journey through some of the greatest examples of Canada’s natural areas and to connect with nature through NCC’s Nature Destinations program.

Nature Destinations invites Canadians to explore and experience a selection of NCC properties across Canada. These properties are located in our country’s most unique landscapes — from forests, grasslands and mountains, to lakes, rivers and coasts. By supporting this program, MEC and NCC will not only help protect Canada’s natural spaces and the species they sustain, but provide Canadians with opportunities to experience them both virtually and in person.

MEC has been a long-time supporter of NCC’s conservation work, providing grants totalling nearly $1 million to local projects across Canada.
