TORONTO and CHICAGO, Nov. 22, 2023 /CNW/ - BMO today announced the Wrap the Good campaign is back this year with a holiday gift guide to bring awareness and support the financial progress of underrepresented groups including but not exclusive to women, Indigenous, Native, Latino, Black, and/or Asian owned businesses. The program underscores BMO's commitment to Zero Barriers to Inclusion, and to help remove systemic barriers for business owners from underrepresented communities.
This year, BMO is making it easier for shoppers to explore products from these businesses through a curated gift guide at BMOWrapTheGood.com. The website features the ability to explore and shop from over 50 businesses with 300 unique products to gift. The campaign will be supported by the return of complimentary holiday gift wrap, available at select BMO branches in Canada and the U.S while supplies last.
"The return of BMO's Wrap the Good campaign brings attention to inspiring underrepresented businesses during the holiday season," said Mike Bonner Head, Canadian Business Banking, BMO.
