Ontario Public Interest Research Group

Ontario Public Interest Research Group (OPIRG) McMaster is a not-for-profit student organization that is committed to social and environmental justice. We are known locally as the little office with the big ideas. And we act on them.

We empower students  and community to become engaged citizens and develop research and advocacy skills in the service of the public good. OPIRG links research with action on a broad range of social justice and environmental issues, both locally and globally. Through research, proactive education, community networking, and volunteer action, the energy and imagination of students drive the work of OPIRG.We raise awareness, provide activist training, organize events, fight against colonization and for sustainable livable communities, rally against indifference, poverty, and war and provide fair trade goods.
