“We look forward to this fun-filled family day and the opportunity to meet our neighbours and other members of the community,” said Cathy Roberts, Branch Manager, BMO Bank of Montreal. “The new 6,000 square foot branch will accommodate customers and offer more services and private offices including a Nesbitt Burns Investment Advisor on site. We are ‘making money make sense’ by providing the clarity customers need to make sound financial decisions. Our commitment has never been more relevant than it is now given today’s economic realities.”

BMO’s new space is prepared to accommodate the needs of this growing city.

”Kitchener’s economy enjoys solid underpinnings, with unemployment below and incomes above the provincial and national benchmarks,” said Robert Kavcic, Economic Analyst, BMO Capital Markets. “Given its relatively young demographics, its highly regarded educational institutions, and its diversified industrial mix, the area should perform well over the medium term as the broader North American economy turns the corner. Once the current economic weakness passes, growth in the region is expected to exceed both the Ontario and Canadian rates through 2012.”

“To AIR MILES collectors in Kitchener, we have another reason for you to bank with BMO. Now you can collect AIR MILES reward miles whenever and wherever you make purchases using your BMO Bank of Montreal debit card or receive an exclusive 20 per cent discount on all flights offered by AIR MILES using BMO’s Gold Mosaik MasterCard” said Anne Kozak, Personal Area Banking Manager, BMO Bank of Montreal. “We’re unique in the marketplace; no other bank can help you collect faster and redeem quicker. We are the only major financial institution that rewards debit purchases with access to a comprehensive choice of more than 800 AIR MILES reward and travel options.”
