Creative Director/ Designer
With no job, no plan and no place to live, Lisa Mok packed up her car and drove from Ottawa to Toronto to pursuit something that she wasn’t sure of at the time.
Now. Being the Global Creative Director of Canada Goose and having plenty of awards under her belt, Lisa has proved her success to her traditional Chinese parents. However, she could care less about all these achievements she has earned. In fact, the soft strength and resilience she has manifested allows her to strongly appreciate the small things, moments and imperfections in life.
Her passion project, which she re-imagines, redesigns and alters the objects she found, has caught some attention. And if you go to her website at lisamok.ca, you will quickly fall in love with all these beautiful things and find it quite difficult to imagine their not-so-perfect past.

"You have to know how to give...I think that's what being human should be all about. It’s not about putting that pressure on you like: What’s your purpose in life? Mine is just to live, and being purposeful for the people around me and they can use me for whatever they want. My skill set, my cooking, whatever that is. But I want to be able to offer something back. “ - Lisa Mok
