Application Process

  In selecting qualified Attic applicants, we look for:

However, if our first pool application date (January 18th) has passed, we recommend submitting your application as soon as possible rather than waiting until after your tour.

It is the policy of The Attic that all employees, volunteers and students have a right to work and study in an environment that asserts the personal worth and dignity of each individual.

In order to achieve this objective, The Attic will not tolerate any form of discrimination and/or harassment in its employment or education dealings.   Discrimination against, or harassment of, any employee, group of employees, student or group of students, on the basis of race, ancestry, place or origin, color, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed (religion), sex, sexual orientation, age, marital status, family status, mental or physical disability defeats this objective and will not be tolerated by The Attic.

This policy shall apply where there exists a negative work or study environment or potential adverse impact on an individual's work or study performance, or on their work or study environment.
