March Income

Hello everybody I hope you are all doing great. First off I have been really busy and haven’t been able to write a post in awhile. I hope everyone had an outstanding month of March and increased your dividend income.

After a very busy February my portfolio returned back to normal. March was great for me and also very quiet for me no purchases were made. At the moment I am just sitting back and watching the dividends role in. In March I had 12 companies pay me dividends by far the busiest month I have ever had. The income received for the month was $243.39 that is an increase of  $78.95 compared to March 2015. I received $64.58 in my TFSA account. For my RRSP account I received $178.81.

My portfolio consists of two accounts Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA) and Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP). I had five companies from my TFSA and seven companies from my RRSP pay me in March.

  • Boardwalk Real Estate Investment Trust   $13.13
  • Chorus Aviation                                       $10.84
  • Artis Real Estate Investment Trust            $13.77
  • Keg Royalties Income Fund                      $14.53
  • Boston Pizza Royalties Income Fund         $12.31

  • Fortis                                          $60.00

  • Power Corp of Canada                  $11.21

Dividends In 2016


Through the first three months of 2016 I have received a total of $753.94. In 2015 at this time I had received $556.07 so I have increased my income year over year by 135% I am all smiles when I see this number.

  1. Thanks Tawcan it was a great month a big part of the growth was the purchase of the monthly income stocks in February, that should fuel some impressive growth for the remainder of the year.
