Vivian Risi

2010 Richmond Hill

Vivian Risi lives both her professional and business life with heart. That’s her claim to success. Moving to Canada from Italy at the age of three, and growing up as an immigrant in Canada, taught her the value of a caring gesture. Vivian Risi instills her business, Royal LePage Realty, with this same human touch. Winner of Royal LePage Philanthropist of the Year award for her work with Yellow Brick House, Vivian and her family also contribute to community through working with York Region hospitals and supporting local events. Vivian considers giving to be instinctual; treating both her clients and her community with the same kindness she experienced as a newcomer to Canada. Vivian’s current initiative is helping Yellow Brick House to reach their goal of four million dollars to unlock the doors of a second shelter in York Region.
