Mountain Equipment Coop Affiliate Program

6% commission • 30 days cookie duration • Terms & Conditions

MEC is a retail co-op that aims to inspire and enable all Canadians to lead active outdoor lifestyles. We do that by selling outdoor gear, clothing and services. We guarantee the quality of our products. If the quality of an item doesn’t meet expectations, it can be returned. But we offer more than products, we offer passion. We love to share our expertise, experience, and enthusiasm. Part of every purchase helps conserve the places where we play and supports all Canadians getting active outside.

We started small: a few young climbers in the mountains who dreamed of gear that wouldn’t let them down at prices they could afford. We’ve grown from a few members to millions, and our interests have grown too. Now we climb, ski, hike, run, paddle and cycle. As we grew from a small business to a big one, we remained a different kind of business. We’re a member-owned co-operative, not focused on making big surpluses, just enough to sustain what we do. A lifetime membership is $5, the same since 1971.
