He will deliver executive advisory support, serving Deloitte’s public and private sector clients.

“Peter joins Deloitte Canada with tremendous leadership experience as a former senior cabinet minister in the country’s federal government. While at the helm of critical government portfolios, he confronted issues of national importance with pragmatism and resourcefulness—working diligently and passionately to strengthen the country for all Canadians,” said Anthony Viel, chief executive officer at Deloitte Canada.

At McInnes Cooper, MacKay will provide advice to the business and public sector clients of the company from across the world on various matters.

He chaired the Government National security committee for almost 10 years.

Mackay started his legal career in Nova Scotia as a Crown Prosecutor (Criminal Law Division) and worked as a general practitioner before entering politics. He is entering his 30th year as a member of the Nova Scotia Barristers society and is also called to the bar in Ontario.
