Volunteering main

We’re passionate about growing the good for our communities, so BMO employees enthusiastically share their time and knowledge through volunteering. We are proud of our culture of volunteering and working to create positive change; in 2019, more than 5,700 employees dedicated over 18,700 hours to charitable organizations.

BMO Volunteer Day

Every June, our annual BMO Volunteer Day gives employees the opportunity to dedicate time within their work day to a cause that’s important to them. Volunteering opportunities include projects that support disaster relief, homeless shelters, children and youth organizations, elder care, community housing and health care facilities, family resource centres, parks and recreational facilities, food banks, and the Red Cross.

BMO Days of Caring

Every Fall, in partnership with United Way, BMO’s Days of Caring gives employees a rare sneak peek into United Way agencies and the chance to learn about the diverse needs of people in communities across North America.


BMO Employees across North America support their communities through participation in an annual campaign to support United Way partners and other charitable organizations.
