The Team

Emilio Di Fiore - Founder and consultant

The group was founded by Emilio Di Fiore who immigrated to Canada from Italy shortly after WWII.  In 1958, Emilio left his job as an airplane mechanic and began building homes under the banner of Les Constructions Di Fiore.  He quickly established a solid reputation as a builder of very high quality homes that were built to last.  Now retired, Emilio built over 1,500 residential units in a building career that spanned over 40 years.  He now acts as a mentor and consultant to his three children, Joanne, Gene, and Dino, who have taken over the management of the family business.
