Hello again everyone, welcome to my December 2021 dividend and year end summary. I hope everyone was able to enjoy and celebrate the Christmas season, and get some deserved rest and relaxation over the holidays! December brought 3 about more dividend increases to my portfolio. Royal Bank, Bank of Montreal and Enbridge announced these increases and added $181.58 to my annual income for 2022 I made a few small purchases in the month, I started a position of 40 shares in Intertape Polymer ($ITP), not in time to collect the January dividend, but still added $25.50 in annual income.  I also added 4 shares in Bank of Montreal ($BMO), 19 Manulife Financial ($MFC) shares and 8 Enbridge ($ENB) shares.  These 3 purchases added $74.87 towards my 2022 annual dividend income.  Across my three accounts (TFSA,RRSP & RESP) I earned $627.01 in dividend income, and added 17 shares via DRIP. In total, I collected $5032.10 from dividends.  This is my biggest year to date! At the end of 2020 I moved

November 2021 Dividends

Hello again everyone, welcome to my November 2021 dividend summary.   I enjoyed a pretty quiet month again, taking a shift off in the middle of the month gave me 21 days off for the third month in a row.  (Out of days off for the year, back to week on/week off routine moving forward!) With this time, I was able to travel to SE Sask to visit my parents and other friends & family members for an early Christmas since I am on shift for the best holiday of the year.  Life in the patch requires the odd sacrifice!  From the yard I grew up in I could see a few companies I invest in - Whitecap wells and facility visible out the kitchen window, an old Enbridge terminal just beyond the trees, now operated by Kingston Midstream, with an idle Secure Energy facility adjacent to that terminal, along with several Vermilion Energy wells just to the south. November was a big month in terms of dividend increases, 7 companies announced increases: - Cenovus 100% - Canadian Natural Resources 25% - Enerp

October 2021 Dividends

Hello again everyone, welcome to my October '21 dividend summary.   October was a busy month, I took my first trip out of country in 20+ months! I accompanied my father in-law and met up with my brother in-law in Cleveland to travel to Rochester, NY to watch my niece and nephew participate in their homecoming weekend of sports activities.  My niece went 3-0 in her volleyball, and her team has claimed first place in preparation for playoffs. My nephew won his hockey game, setting up the game winning goal with a slick steal and cross ice pass.  His season is just getting going, so I will be scoreboard watching his progress! To finish off the weekend, we travelled back to Cleveland and took in the Browns/Cardinals game for my first live NFL experience.  I've never been in a crowd of 60k+ before, I can only imagine how raucous the after game activities would have been had the Browns won! It was still an awesome experience to take in.     As for income I received $144.64 fro

September 2021 Dividends

 Welcome everyone to my first attempt at blogging about my passive income via dividends! This month I received $618.46 in passive income via dividends into three accounts - my TFSA, RRSP & RESP. Here are the results: Earning $0.86 per hour in September has brought my annual total to $3377.73. 2021 chart numbers are exaggerated since I transferred all my GRSP funds into my personal RRSP investing account and began recording the dividends.  Looking forward to '22 when I can really start to see an accurate reflection of my investments (hopefully in a positive trend!)  Thanks for stopping by! This blog is a method of recording my personal investment journey and should not be taken as advice.  As always, perform your own due diligence.
