Citizenship Report



At BMO Capital Markets, supporting the communities where we live and work is an important part of our culture. Our annual Citizenship Report provides our stakeholders with an overview of how we've contributed to the lives of our employees, our clients, and our neighbours.

Employee Giving




In 2016, 92% of BMO Capital Markets employees made a charitable contribution through the Employee Giving campaign, raising a total of $4.7 million.


Each year, BMO Capital Markets employees across North America participate in the BMO Employee Giving campaign. Through the campaign, which is run in conjunction with all of BMO Financial Group's lines of businesses, employees are given the opportunity to make a donation to their local United Way or another charity of their choice.


Supporting the communities in which we live and work is an important part of BMO's corporate responsibility platform. In North America BMO partners with United Way because it works to solve immediate issues in our communities and also researches root causes to prevent future problems.


BMO Capital Markets employees are not only generous in their financial contributions; they are also generous with their time. More than 230 of our employees volunteer regularly with charitable and not-for-profit organizations in their communities, with more than half being board positions.

Equity Through Education



Equity Through Education is a charitable initiative aimed at creating a more diverse workplace. It helps deserving students realize their educational ambitions by giving them opportunities they might not otherwise have.


We donate all North American and European institutional equity trading commissions from one day each year to organizations dedicated to the education of bright and deserving individuals.


To date, Equity Through Education has raised C$19.5 million (US$17 million/£11.6 million). This translates into assistance to nearly 4,500 students through scholarships, bursaries and job search strategy forums.
