Indigenous Banking Spotlight: Siksika Nation


In this video, Doug Bourque, VP – Indigenous Banking, visits with Ouray Crowfoot, CFO of Siksika Nation, to talk about how BMO is helping to support the development of a sustainable future for the Siksika Nation, located just outside of Calgary, AB.

Economic development is an urgent priority, but it’s also the work of generations. BMO has been working closely with the Siksika since 1995, and that longevity is the foundation of the trust that enables the partnership to soar. As Doug says, “At the end of the day, it’s about creating human value.”
