October 2021 Dividend Income

Hello and welcome everyone to my October dividend income post. Hope you all had a good month, October was another good month with some of my favourite Canadian stocks paying me. I received $644.05 in income from ten stocks and one ETF. Here is the breakdown per account:

  • TFSA $397.00
  • RRSP $247.05

If you’re new to the site my RRSP is all in US dollars and all of my Canadian stocks sit in my TFSA and LIRA. When sharing with you the income I receive I don’t convert the US dividend income into Canadian for simplicity.

Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA)

20202021
Bank of Nova Scotia$109.80$110.70
BCE$61.60$74.38
Telus$50.97$72.41
TC Energy$26.73$41.76
The Keg Royalties Income Fund$15.35$29.04
iShares S&P/TSX Capped Reit Index ETF$41.76$25.50
Aecon$20.80$22.75
Go Easy$13.95$20.46
Inter Pipeline$12.36
Power Corp$46.09
Total$399.41$397.00

Four of my top stocks delivered the most income this month. I hold this account with WealthSimple and on their Trade app I am able to purchase fractional shares of BCE, Telus, BNS and TC Energy so over the future months I will be plowing every cent I earn back into them, which will then increase my income. Another positive thing to happen was The Keg returned its monthly distribution back to pre-pandemic levels, that is why you see the big jump from them. My income dropped this month as Power Corp moved their dividend payout to November.
