- Services provided in four different languages;
- Access to commercial account and deposit services;

- Barrier-free access.
"BMO is excited to establish an open-concept branch in Fort McMurray," said Imran Ahmed, Timberlea Landing Branch Manager, BMO Bank of Montreal. "Given the number of young families and new homeowners in the community, there is an increased need for financial advisers and services in the area. BMO encourages new and existing members of the community to come in and speak with our trained professionals about their personal finance requirements."
Mr. Ahmed added that the extended hours at the new branch make it easier for customers to come in and speak with BMO's team about all of their financial needs.
