Bank Accounts


As of March 2019, MAHIP has one bank account with BMO. Previously there was one bank account as the operating account, and one short-term investment with RBC.  When the short-term investment came due, the money was consolidated into the operating account.

Signing authority on this account must be changed with the appointment of a new treasurer.
