Ontario Poultry Farmers To Benefit from New BMO Bank of Montreal Broiler Producer Financial Program  


Broiler farmers in Ontario will be able to receive faster decisions on applications for lines-of-credit, farm mortgages, quota-backed loan assessments and other banking services with the launch today of the new BMO Bank of Montreal Broiler Producer Financial Services Program.

The financial program, introduced at The Poultry Industry Conference & Exhibition in London, Ontario, is the first of its kind by a major bank in Ontario.

“By working closely with broiler producers across Ontario, we have developed a unique perspective of the demands and challenges that today’s economic environment places on farmers,“ said Alison Connell, Senior Manager of Agriculture, BMO Bank of Montreal.   “This program leverages the value we place on the key assets of our agricultural customers such as land, buildings, equipment and quota, to provide an integrated financial services program designed specifically to meet the needs of Ontario broiler producers.”  

The new program takes into account virtually all the cash and credit requirements of a broiler producer, including:

  • Cost effective everyday business banking plans
  • Term loan financing for equipment and quota
  • Farm mortgages and Farm Improvement Loans
  • Easy and convenient access to all business banking accounts
  • Operating Loans and Farm Equipment Line of credit

Broiler producers and interested customers can call 1-877-629-6262 or visit their local BMO Bank of Montreal branch to receive more information about the program.
