TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 31, 2011) - BMO Financial Group will host a media conference call for the launch of its new publication, the BMO Blue Book. The BMO Blue Book, published jointly twice a year by BMO Capital Markets Economics and BMO Commercial Banking, combines the expertise of BMO's economists with anecdotal information on current business conditions from BMO's commercial bankers. The BMO Blue Book features a report for Canada, each province and the Greater Toronto Area.

"Just as the Federal Reserve's Beige Book has become a valuable resource in communities across the U.S., we hope our Blue Book will help Canadian businesses understand their local environments better," said Douglas Porter, Deputy Chief Economist, BMO Capital Markets.
