About BMO and the Calgary Stampede
BMO Bank of Montreal's ties to the Calgary Stampede are long and
remarkable. The relationship between BMO and the Calgary Stampede is
the oldest business relationship in Western Canada, dating back to
1884. BMO has been the banker to the Calgary Exhibition since 1899
when lands were christened at Victoria Park. The Agricultural Society
had purchased 94 acres of land from the Dominion of Canada and built
a race track, cattle sheds and an exhibition building. BMO continued
as the banker in 1912 when the first rodeo took place and it became
the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede.
