Holidays

Holidays are a time to reflect, celebrate and spend time with family and friends. BMO provides you with paid time off for holidays each year.
BMO observes nine to ten paid holidays per year. The holidays observed are based on whether your business unit follows the Federal Reserve Bank or the New York Stock Exchange holiday schedule. Most business units follow the Federal Reserve holiday schedule. Be sure to check with your manager.
