The BMO (Bank of Montreal) USD account is a great choice for Canadians who need a place to keep their US dollars, or to keep money that they are paid in USD. By opening this account, you won’t have the hassle of exchanging your money to Canadian dollars, and this is a major plus if exchange rates aren’t favourable.
With BMO, you can save your money in a US dollar account with no monthly fees as long as you hold another type of account with the bank. This page outlines everything you need to know about the BMO USD account and how it can help you reach your financial goals.
In order to benefit from the US dollar account with BMO, you must hold another type of chequing account with them. If you already bank with BMO, you can sign up online. Other new customers should visit a branch to open a USD account.
If you’re already a customer of BMO, simply sign into online banking and fill out the application in as little as seven minutes. If not, you can follow the steps to open a chequing account.
Book an appointment using the BMO website and see the nearest branch to you.
