Founded in 1817, the Bank of Montreal has the distinction of being Canada’s first bank. As a result, it has played a major role in the development of Canada and its financial systems. Among other things, it helped finance Canada’s first railroad, telegraph line, the Lachine Canal, hydroelectric plants, and the Canada Pacific Railroad. Today, it is the eight largest bank in North America, with more than 12 million customers and $774 billion in assets. In many of its communications, the brand tends to lean into its heritage as a builder. While it has offices around the world, the brand’s primary focus is in its home market and six Midwestern US states.
