The general objectives of the organization are:

to give students the means to promote their work and their research in positive social action, to acquire practical and enriching experiences as well as to use university resources for the benefit of the community as a whole;
to tackle social and ecological problems by carrying out student projects on themes of public interest;
to promote student participation in public debates, community actions and regulatory or legislative reforms;
to promote the active participation of the greatest number of students in the projects and decisions of the organization;
to work in partnership with members of the Uqamian community, other GRIPs in Quebec and the outside community;

Because of the context related to the pandemic, it is difficult to reach the teams of student associations to obtain their annual activities report. However, we confirm that QPIRG did indeed hold environmental education activities between 2017 and 2019.
