Economic Empowerment


Two people looking out the window

We are committed to doubling the size of our Indigenous Banking business from $4B to $8B by 2025 and we will contribute to nearly $15 million to dozens of charitable and non-profit organizations over the next 10 years

Doubling the size of Indigenous Banking business

BMO’s Indigenous Banking Unit has been focused on one main goal: to contribute to the economic growth and empowerment of Indigenous communities, businesses and individuals across Canada. Established in 1992 by Ron Jamieson, a member of the Mohawk Nation from Six Nations in southern Ontario and an Order of Canada recipient.

Through our 13 full-service branches, one business office on-reserve and 20 ABMs, we make financial products and services more accessible to nearly 250 Indigenous communities throughout Canada. We’re growing every year and are now more than halfway to our goal with over $6B in deposits, loans, and investments.
