Norma Trivino is the Co-Founder of Gracefully Yours and a trailblazing community leader and advocate. In addition to this, Norma currently serves as a Richmond Hill Ambassador and is the first Latina to have been selected for this role. Her professionalism and philanthropic work have extended her influence from the City of Richmond Hill to surrounding areas in the GTA.
Norma’s love for her community can be traced back to her experiences as a young immigrant living with her family of six in government assisted housing. During her childhood, Norma was exposed to the realities of poverty in her beloved City of Toronto, which undeniably left an early impression. Since then, Norma has grown into a socially conscious Canadian citizen with a commitment to serve not only as a business professional but as a dedicated volunteer.
With over 18 years’ experience working at Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), Norma gained knowledge of Canada’s national housing agency as well as received opportunities to broaden her career. Norma contributed countless hours to the Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign (CWCC) for United Way, where she held a number of leadership roles including Chair, Co-Chair, Special Events Coordinator and Ambassador Coordinator. Her additional pro bono work with local nonprofits has also opened up doors for Norma to work with various vulnerable groups including homeless individuals, immigrants, abused women, and single mothers. Gracefully Yours exists to serve women and girls.
