Vincent Mercier has been appointed chairman of the board of Pathways to Education Canada, a charitable organization that seeks to help break the cycle of poverty through education. He succeeds founding chairman Samuel L. Duboc.

The award-winning Pathways Program works to improve high school graduation rates of its beneficiaries by an average of up to 85 per cent.

He is currently a member of the President’s Council of St. Michael’s Hospital and is a former director of Covenant House Toronto and a former chair of Camp Oochigeas.

In his law practice, Mercier specializes in corporate law, including mergers & acquisitions, capital markets & securities and corporate governance. He was called to the Ontario Bar in 1990, after graduating from Osgoode Hall Law School in 1988. He holds a master’s degree in economics from the University of Western Ontario.
