Passing of Corrado Paina – ICCO Executive Director

It’s with great sadness that we pass along news of the loss of a much-respected leader in the Italian-Canadian community and devoted champion of Italian culture. Corrado Paina, longtime Executive Director of the Italian Chamber of Commerce of Ontario has passed away in hospital.

In addition to being a respected businessman and community leader, Corrado was also an accomplished writer and artist. He received the “Menzione civica – Ambrogino d’oro” award from the City of Milan for his work twinning the cities of Toronto and Milan. In 2016 he was been appointed Knight of the Order of the Star of Italy.

The ICCCW Board of Directors and our Team extend our deepest condolences to Corrado’s family and our friends at the ICCO.
