VANCOUVER, Sept. 24 /CNW/ - BMO Bank of Montreal today opened a new
$1.4 million full-service branch in Yaletown to serve the banking and

thriving area of downtown Vancouver.
Customers will have access to a full complement of retail and commercial
banking experts in the new BMO branch located at 1004 Hamilton Street. The

state-of-the-art branch demonstrates our commitment to meeting the financial
needs of local consumers and to foster the growth of Yaletown," said Rob
Serraglio, Vice President, Personal Banking for BMO Bank of Montreal in
