    VAUDREUIL, QC, Oct. 29 /CNW/ - BMO Bank of Montreal today opened a new
banking branch in Vaudreuil, following an investment of $4.1 million. Located

financial solutions and a superior banking experience to each of our
customers, whenever they visit our branch," said Sylvie Milot, manager of the
BMO Bank of Montreal branch.
    "This major investment is further proof of our commitment to the
Vaudreuil-Soulanges region and of our desire to develop business relationships
in the community with individuals as well as small and medium-sized
businesses," said Helen Tyros, Vice-President, Metropolitan Montreal, BMO Bank
of Montreal. We are proud to increase our regional presence with this branch,
which joins our Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue and Ile-Perrot branches, and to expand
access for our customers, who can now do business with us seven days a week, a
unique offer among the region's financial institutions."
    "Our objective is to demonstrate to our customers that BMO is the only
financial institution they'll ever need, and I know we have the products,
services and personnel to prove it to them every day of the week," added Ms.
Tyros.
    Our customers can be sure they'll be met by a professional who is ready
to have a meaningful discussion with them, a discussion that starts and ends
with their needs. Customers will also be able to take advantage of attractive
product offers, in particular BMO's AIR MILES Rewards Miles program, which
allows members to collect reward miles in various ways, including via their
BMO debit card transactions."
    Occupying more than 1,500 square metres, the new BMO branch brings
together a team of knowledgeable professionals, including:

        welcoming private offices to advise them on made-to-measure financial
        solutions;

    -   Customer service representatives specializing in day-to-day
        transactions;

    -   A Commercial Account Manager to meet the needs of small and medium-
        sized companies;

    -   A mortgage loan specialist to help customers buy or finance a home;

    -   And wealth management and investment services provided by the
        branch's financial planners.

    Customers' access to financial services is enhanced by:

    -   Extended branch hours (Monday, Tuesday and Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 6
