Founded in 1988, OPIRG Brock is the Niagara-based chapter of the Ontario Public Interest Research Group.
OPIRG Brock works with students, service providers, community members, labour unions, artists and activists to build collaboration, connections, and communities of abundance. OPIRG Brock connects people to campus and community activism and services through our projects like the Niagara Free Store, the Anti-Racism Sponsorship Fund, the DisOrientation Guide to Niagara, and the Niagara Skills Network.
Since being defunded in 2018, our ability to do this work and pay our staff comes from support from the communtiy in the form of memberships, donations, and volunteers!

Safer Space Policy
The work of OPIRG Brock is guided in part by our Safer Space Policy. We recognize that no space can be 100% safe, so this policy is for all of our Board, Staff, volunteers, members, action groups and community to comply with at any OPIRG Brock events, meetings and spaces to ensure that our spaces are as safe as they can be. Read the main tenets of the policy below or in full here.
