Quebec Public Interest Research Group at Concordia University, Montreal
QPIRG Concordia is a student funded, non-profit organization that strives to raise awareness and motivate grassroots activism around diverse social and environmental issues. We seek to make campus-community links and inspire social change through engaging, inclusive and non-hierarchical approaches. QPIRG is a resource centre for student and community activism that is independent from the Concordia administration and student union. Membership is open to all. Both students and community members are welcome to make use of our space and resources as well as participate in QPIRG projects.
Our operations include maintaining technical support for working groups, hosting various speakers and events, skill-building workshops, a resource centre, and responding to organizational needs of the activist communities. If you have an idea, we can help you make it a reality. QPIRG is committed to being inclusive and accessible to all; we recognize the links between various forms of oppression and are actively opposed to discrimination on the basis of gender, race, class, sexual orientation, dis/ability, health, size, citizenship status, language and spiritual beliefs.
