All About WPIRG
WPIRG’s mission is to engage students and community members to become active citizens and volunteers on environmental, human rights, and social justice issues. Started in 1973, the Waterloo Public Interest Research Group (WPIRG) provides a place to research, educate, and take action on environmental and social justice issues.
WPIRG functions on fees paid by full-time undergraduate students enrolled at the University of Waterloo. Students’ monetary contribution provides important resources, like a meeting space, library, button-maker, sewing-machine, as well as workshops, film screenings, and events, which are planned, created, and used by student volunteers.
