OPIRG Kingston Mandate

Our Mandate

The Ontario Public Interest Research Group (OPIRG) Kingston is dedicated to research, education, and action in the public interest. We are predominantly student-funded and student-run, but strive to maintain a balance of support and direction from the wider Kingston community. OPIRG Kingston exists to serve as a training ground for concerned citizens to recognize and engage the problems of society.

OPIRG Kingston is committed to making links between social justice and environmental issues recognizing that many issues are interlinked and should be examined in a manner, which highlights their connections. OPIRG Kingston aims to act as a liaison between other staff, faculty and community groups working on similar issues, by promoting networking and open discussion of our goals and projects. We believe that many different approaches and perspectives are needed to work toward positive social change.
