REPEAT-Media Advisory: BMO Celebrates Grand Opening of New Branch in Chilliwack

Former branch donated to University of the Fraser Valley - BMO's largest one-time donation in B.C.

CHILLIWACK, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/08/12 -- BMO Bank of Montreal invites customers and members of the community to celebrate the grand opening of its new full-service Eagle Landing branch located at 8249 Eagle Landing Parkway in Chilliwack, on Saturday, December 8, 2012.

Today, BMO also announced the donation of its former Five Corners branch to the University of the Fraser Valley for a future UFV business centre. The donation, the largest in UFV's history at $1.5 million, includes renovation funds from the Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation.

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


--  Two ATMs - including a drive-thru ATM; 
--  Services provided in four different languages; 
--  Access to commercial account and deposit services - including a night
    depository for small business after-hours use; and 
--  Barrier-free access. 

"Chilliwack is located in the heart of the Fraser Valley's thriving agriculture community, and as such it is an important part of the local and provincial economies. It is also home to a number of successful local companies and has experienced steady population growth in recent years," said Nalla Steigvilas, Branch Manager, BMO Bank of Montreal.

"At our new branch, the extended banking hours make it easier for our customers to come in and speak with our team about all of their financial needs," noted Ms. Steigvilas. "Nearly half of businesses in B.C. surveyed for the BMO Small Business Confidence Report predicted they will grow in 2013. Commercial clients are clearly confident about expanding their operations and hiring people; we encourage businesses in the Chilliwack region to get their share of the $10 billion in credit BMO has made available, giving them access to the capital they need to grow."

Open six days a week, the BMO Eagle Landing Chilliwack branch hours are:


--  9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday to Wednesday; 
--  9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Thursday and Friday; and

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
