Riza Santos was officially crowned Miss Universe Canada 2013
Family, fellow Miss Universe Canada 2013 delegates, friends and media gathered to welcome 26-year-old Riza Santos as she received her Miss Universe Canada 2013 title at Osteria de Medici.
Santos’ parents are from Bataan and Bulacan in the Philippines but she was raised in Canada.
Riza’s preparation for the Miss Universe 2013 Pageant which will be held in December will begin with travelling to Toronto to model at Philippine Fashion Week and then to Nicaragua as one of the team members of the 2013 Miss Universe Canada Goodwill tour to Nicaragua where they will be working with SOS Childrens Villages and Operation Smile to transform the lives of children.

As we reported earlier, Denise Garrido was announced the winner of Miss Universe Canada 2013 due to a calculation error. After the validation of the computerized scoring results, the organizers issued an official announcement of the pageant’s results.
It sucks for Denise! She must be disappointed, however, she is accepting that decision in a graceful manner.
