About Us

Welcome to OPIRG-GRIPO, your space for radical activism and meaningful change. At OPIRG-GRIPO, we nurture student activism to create sustainable movements for social change.

As a non-profit organization, we're dedicated to fostering a more just and equitable world for all. Our democratically elected Board of Directors, predominantly comprised of uOttawa students, ensures that our initiatives are student-focused and community-driven. As one of Canada's largest and oldest PIRGs (Public Interest Research Groups), we collaborate with others nationwide to raise funds, provide vital services to marginalized communities, and advocate for community rights at all levels of government.
