Here are some important things that make us different from others:

Affordable Living

Neill-Wycik is a non-for-profit co-op, and that means your housing charge goes back into the building. To live here means you are a member of a community, invested in the maintenance and operation of the building.

Live Democratically

As a member of the co-op, you have a voice in the decision making; you are encouraged to contribute your ideas and become involved in making Neill-Wycik a fair and inclusive place to live.

Member Responsibilities

Each member of Neill-Wycik is responsible for contributing towards the sustainability of the building. This means you are responsible for cleaning your own room and shared unit, and you have the autonomy to join an existing social activity committee or create something new. You understand that you need to be a member in good standing in order to renew your membership each term. During the summer months May – August, vacant rooms are allocated to the hotel in order to balance lower-than-market rent.

Live by the principles

Neill-Wycik honours the principles set by the founding institution of co-operative living, The Rochdale Society of Equitable Pioneers, and they’re at the heart of everything we do.

The Wycik Principles:

Voluntary and Open Membership

Democratic Member Control

Member’s Economic Participation

Autonomy and Independence

Education, Training, and Information

Cooperation Among Cooperatives

Concern for Community

If all of this sounds like the kind of living experience you’re excited about, we invite you to come live with us.
