TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 27, 2014) - BMO Financial Group today announced that it has opened an account for donations to the Military Families Fund. All Canadians are welcome to visit any BMO branch across the country to donate to the fund.

The Military Families Fund was established in 2007 in response to the generous support by Canadians for the members of the Canadian Armed Forces and their families. Managed by Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services, the Military Families Fund provides financial support to the unique, unforeseen and often immediate needs of our men and women in uniform and their families.

"I remain humbled and thankful for the continued support of Canadians to the members and families of the Canadian Armed Forces," said Commodore Mark Watson, Director General, Morale and Welfare Services.

"The tragedies in Ottawa and Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu last week have affected all Canadians, and the outpouring of support for our fallen soldiers has been truly heartwarming," said Hugh McKee, Vice-President, Personal Customer Segment Management, BMO Bank of Montreal. "The fund is a great way of providing assistance to military families in need."
