BMO Announces a New Government Partnership to Empower Women


On May 17, BMO and the Honorable Maryam Monsef, Minister of International Development and Minister for Women and Gender Equality, announced a new partnership to support not-for-profit organizations that empower women.

BMO also unveiled findings from a new report that highlights the gaps in strategic planning by not-for-profits, and the ways organizations can further empower women in Canada.

BMO is committed to economic empowerment, and driving long-term systemic change to improve the lives of women and girls. We offer educational tools, such as our website, www.bmoforwomen.com, and a podcast series, Her Money, Her Way, to help inform women on a wide array of relevant topics.
