Living our culture

At our core, we’re builders – proud to be fueling growth and expanding possibilities for individuals, families and businesses.

Inspired by our Purpose

BMO’s Purpose is to Boldly Grow the Good in business and life. It guides every decision we make, and inspires and empowers us to do more for the customers and communities we serve. As a commercial enterprise, we are intent on growing, but believe that growth must be inclusive, creating benefits for families, businesses and the wider world around us. Our focus is more than profit – it’s progress.

BMO’s Purpose identifies what we are here to do. BMO’s four values illuminate who we are.


Do what’s right


Put others first


Learn from


Make tomorrow

unwavering to our commitments

Being a responsibly managed bank means helping everyone whose success contributes to our own. It’s a commitment we take personally. Because we’re bankers, but we’re people first.


BMO donates over $63 million to non-profit organizations each year. As part of our team, you’ll take part in exciting community-building activities that unite BMO employees across borders in an effort to boldly grow the good for everyone. You can also join ranks with the over 90% of BMO employees who contribute to our annual Employee Giving Campaign, raising critical funds for local charities, and volunteer during working hours with our annual BMO Days of Caring and BMO Volunteer Day opportunities.


BMO integrates environmental considerations into how we do business. We’ve been carbon neutral since 2010, and we are dedicated to minimizing the environmental impact of our operational activities.


When you manage people’s money, values matter. Every year we impact the lives of over 12 million customers and business. Earning their trust means working with integrity. Being transparent. Having a disciplined approach to risk. Weighing the potential impact of every choice we make.

Our People

We invest in our people’s success – placing a high priority on learning, growth and well-being. You can be an owner from your very first day with us—so as you grow the good for our customers and communities, you grow a little for yourself, too.
