MDC is Canada’s only national distributor of tactical and duty equipment to police, military, security and first-responders.

Founded in 1980, MDC has grown from a small office and retail showroom in Victoria, BC to a salesforce across Canada with a distribution hub in Mississauga, ON, and a retail store in Ottawa (Stittsville).

MDC has revolutionized the way Canada’s police, military and other first-responders discover and select their clothing, weapons and other mission critical equipment.

Celebrating its 40th anniversary this year (2020), MDC has been an ongoing supporter of bringing game changing products and training to the Canadian marketplace. MDC was first to introduce Axon (Conducted Energy Weapons - CEWs), Bounce Imaging (tactical throwable cameras), Point Blank Body Armour (lightweight body armour), and many more to the Canadian market.
