BMO donates $750,000 to Vancouver Aquarium

BMO joins in the fight for conservation as Vancouver Aquarium’s newest community partner in support of the Aquarium’s $100-million expansion and revitalization, representing the largest, most ambitious re-development in its history.

At the members’ sneak peek event on May 15, BMO Financial Group, represented by Joanne Gassman, senior vice president, BC & Yukon Division of BMO Bank of Montreal, announced its donation of $750,000 to the Vancouver Aquarium.

As Canada’s largest aquarium, the Vancouver Aquarium has inspired and engaged over 40 million people around the globe for an amazing 57 years. The Aquarium’s extensive conservation, research and education programs have grown over the years, as have its interpretive programs and interactive gallery experiences, making the Vancouver Aquarium a leader in aquatic engagement and conservation awareness.

The current revitalization will enable the Aquarium to connect even more people to our natural world, inspiring the change needed to protect our aquatic habitats. With 34,000 square feet of additional public space, new and engaging galleries and a distinctive new entrance plaza, the Aquarium will continue to shine as Vancouver’s top cultural institution.
