OPIRG Action Groups

What are action groups?

OPIRG-Ottawa’s action groups are made up of dedicated students, university staff and community volunteers who work together on one or more topics related to social, environmental or economic justice. Their activities relieve suffering or promote dignity, health, sustainability or equity. OPIRG action groups are independent and organize a wide variety of events and projects. Action groups receive funding, training and other support from OPIRG-Ottawa. Here is OPIRG’s Action Groups Policy.

How to become an action group

Campus-based groups whose activities reflect OPIRG’s mandate can apply to become OPIRG action groups. Please complete the AG application form and send it to the Action Groups Coordinator at Ronda@opirg-gripo.ca. Please also contact us if you would like to discuss creating a new group to work on an issue.

Critical Urban Research Society

Critical Urban Research Society

The Crit­i­cal Urban Research Soci­ety is here to encour­age peo­ple to explore texts broadly related to crit­i­cal urban stud­ies, with an ori­en­ta­tion toward social jus­tice.  We are a read­ing group that dis­cusses aca­d­e­mic texts in a relaxed non-judgemental envi­ron­ment that strives to be a place where ideas can be safely explored.
