today announced the opening of its new full-service banking branch,
located in the heart of the rapidly growing city of Brampton at 8950
Hwy 50. 
The new branch offers customers extended banking hours seven days a
week, and is designed to provide a great banking experience through a
variety of financial services and conveniences, including:  


 
--  A coin counter - a simple-to-use kiosk which counts your loose change; 
--  Two ATMs - including a drive-thru ATM; 
--  Services provided in six different languages; 
--  Access to commercial account and deposit services - including a 24 hour

"Brampton's population and expanding infrastructure is creating many
employment and business opportunities," said Sandy Wason, Branch
Manager, BMO Bank of Montreal. "To serve the needs of this growing
community, we are thrilled to be opening the doors to our new
Brampton branch." 
According to BMO Economics, Brampton is one the fastest-growing
cities in Canada; the population has expanded almost 21 per cent in
the five years through 2011, compared with less than 6 per cent
nationally. "This robust population growth is in part due to a
diverse and centrally-located economy, and is supporting ongoing
housing development," said Robert Kavcic, Economist, BMO Capital
Markets. 
To celebrate, customers who open a new Primary Chequing Account with
a Performance Plan between November 3 and December 31, 2012 will
receive $150 deposited into their new account.
