Since 1995, OPIRG McMaster has been a place for students to explore social and environmental concerns with a goal of making a positive impact.

Funding and Membership

OPIRG’s core funding comes from full-time undergraduate students in the form of a $5.50 refundable levy for the 2018-2019 academic year. All full-time undergraduate students are automatically members. If you do not wish to support OPIRG McMaster, you can claim a full refund by bringing your student card to the OPIRG office during the three weeks after the completion of the drop and add period, when your student status has been finalized. 

Members can access the resource library, borrow equipment, attend workshops and events for free, vote at our Annual General Meeting, and are eligible to run for the OPIRG McMaster Board of Directors.

Anyone who is not full-time at McMaster is welcome to join OPIRG as a Community Member for a sliding scale $10-20 fee.
