BMO’s employees believe in creating positive, sustainable change and are committed to giving back to our communities through giving campaigns, fundraising and volunteering opportunities.

BMO’s community giving strategy is built on three pillars – collaboration, learning and innovation – that are supported by our 200-year commitment to helping improve the quality of life in our communities.

Carbon neutral since 2010, BMO is dedicated to finding creative and data-driven ways to minimize the environmental impact of our operational activities.

Bold Commitments

BMO’s Purpose attaches intention to our priorities and gives direction to our growth. It informs all of our efforts to accelerate positive change. And it reinforces the unique strengths we bring to creating shared value. We’re constantly finding new ways to put our Purpose into action – and we’re amplifying our impact where we already lead by example through Bold Commitments in three key areas.
