LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/13/12 -- BMO Bank of Montreal invites customers and members of the community to celebrate the grand opening of its new West Lethbridge Highlights branch at 378 University Drive West on Saturday, October 13, 2012.

The new branch offers customers extended banking hours six days a week, and is designed to provide a great banking experience through a broad variety of financial services and conveniences, including:

--  A coin counter; 
--  Access to commercial account and deposit services; 
--  Two on-site ATMs, including a drive-thru ATM, as well as an ATM located
    in the nearby Canada Safeway store; and 
--  Barrier-free access. 

"The 2012 census shows strong population growth in West Lethbridge with a 2.54 per cent increase from 2011," said David May, Branch Manager, BMO Bank of Montreal. "There is a good mixture of seniors, young families and professionals as well as the University of Lethbridge student population of over 8,000. To service the needs of this growing community we are honoured to be opening the doors to our new West Lethbridge Highlands branch, which offers extended banking hours including Saturdays.

Lethbridge has seen consistent business and population growth over the past decade; the city is currently home to more than 5,800 businesses which have positively impacted the Albertan economy.

"Fifty-five per cent of Alberta businesses surveyed for the BMO Small Business Confidence Report predicted their businesses will grow in 2013; only five per cent expect their business to 'shrink'. Commercial clients are clearly confident about expanding their operations and hiring people," said Bill Hogg, Vice President, Commercial Banking, Alberta/NWT, BMO Bank of Montreal.
