CHILLIWACK, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 15, 2012) - BMO Bank of Montreal today announced the opening of its Eagle Landing Branch, a new full-service banking branch, at 8249 Eagle Landing Parkway in Chilliwack. The new branch is located in the heart of the Fraser Valley's thriving agriculture community.

The new branch offers customers extended banking hours, including Saturdays, and is designed to provide a great banking experience through a variety of financial services and conveniences, including:

  • Two ATMs - including a drive-thru ATM;
  • Services provided in three different languages;
  • Access to commercial account and deposit services - including a night depository for small business after-hours use; and
  • Barrier-free access.

"With more than 92,000 residents, Chilliwack's growing population and expanding infrastructure are creating many employment and economic opportunities in British Columbia," said Nalla Steigvilas, Branch Manager, BMO Bank of Montreal. "To service the needs of this growing community, we are thrilled to be opening the doors to the new Eagle Landing branch."

"Forty-four per cent of British Columbia businesses surveyed for the BMO Small Business Confidence Report predicted their businesses will grow in 2013; only five per cent expect their business to 'shrink'. Commercial clients are clearly confident about expanding their operations and hiring people," said Derral Moriyama, Senior Vice-President, Commercial Banking, Greater Vancouver Area, BMO Bank of Montreal. "As Canadians celebrate Small Business Week, we encourage businesses in Chilliwack to get their share of the $10 billion in credit BMO has made available, giving them access to the capital they need to grow."

In celebration of the Eagle Landing branch opening, between October 15 and December 31, 2012 customers who deposit $25 into a new Premium Rate Savings Account for their child will receive an additional $25 deposit, and if they invest a minimum $10,000 in a one to five year BMO GIC they will receive an additional $50 deposited into the principal investment.
