MEC sponsors Royal Canadian Geographical Society
Outdoor equipment retailer MEC has signed a sponsorship agreement with the Royal Canadian Geographical Society that will provide support for a number of adventure expeditions. As the society's official outfitter, the company will provide equipment for an expedition to the Bisaro Plateau Caves, a canoe trip through the George River, Ungava Bay, Mount Iberville and the coastline of the Labrador Sea, a documentary about the search for Sir John Franklin's burial vault and a re-enactment of the first exploration of British Columbia's Waddington Range.
"Gear that's designed, made and tested to perform in the challenging and often harsh conditions that Canadian explorers find themselves in can mean the difference between success or failure," said David Labistour, CEO of MEC. "It's a tremendous honour to bring MEC's expertise in making gear for millions of Canadian outdoor enthusiasts to the RCGS Expeditions Program as its official outfitter."
