About The BMO Capital Markets Equity Through Education initiative:

Equity Through Education is a charitable initiative aimed at creating a more diverse workplace by offering support to help people realize their educational ambitions by giving them opportunities they might not otherwise have. On one day each year all North American institutional equity trading commissions are donated to organizations dedicated to the education of bright and deserving individuals. To date, Equity Through Education has raised C$17.9 million (US$15.7 million). This translates into assistance to over 3,000 students through scholarships, bursaries and job search strategy forums. Lime Connect is proud to have been selected as an Equity Through Education partner in 2011.

BMO Capital Markets is committed to an inclusive, equitable and accessible workplace. By embracing diversity we gain strength through our people and our perspectives.
