At Risk Sciences International, risk is not just one more offering, it is our only offering.
When clients engage with a new firm, they have specific expectations influenced by how the organization portrays itself. The importance of providing clear and unambiguous narratives is therefore critical. We strive to do so. RSI only bids on, or accepts, projects that we feel we can deliver favorably.
Risk Sciences International is a boutique firm that specializes in offering proven expertise in risk to organizations in the private, public, and civil sectors. Our company operates at a size where, for most contracts, the project lead is one of our senior scientists, engineers, or specialized practice leads. It is worth noting that despite our modest size, RSI boasts a strong reputation, empowering us to attract highly qualified external associate experts. As a result, RSI consistently delivers high-quality results on projects ranging from those typical of small businesses and local communities to large and intricate endeavors undertaken for multinational corporations, federal governments, and multilateral organizations.

(RSI) – formally founded in 2006, is headquartered in Ottawa (Canada), is led by CEO Greg Paoli, and specializes in understanding, managing, and communicating risks that impact health, personal livelihoods, property, public infrastructure, the environment, regulatory compliance, stakeholder expectations, and broader societal, industrial, and governmental activities.
