Dividend Income Update - December 2021

The month of December 2021 is another month of dividend income landing in my accounts.

Due to becoming debt free, I changed my pay myself model. Starting the beginning of August 2021. I am paying myself 30%, just like before. This will now consist of 24% to investing, and 6% to savings. The investment portion is going to my TFSA. Any money left over at the end of the month, I put towards investing on top of the money allocated from paying myself first. Hopefully, I can keep this up!

Note: All the dividends and totals below are in Canadian Dollars

I received a total of $511.10 in dividend income for the month of December 2021. This represents a 1.805% increase from 3 months ago and 12.3% increase year over year.

I collected a total of $5803.38 in dividends for all of 2021.  This represents an increase of 8.66% over the total for 2020. 

I received dividend / distribution income from 12 different companies.

A&W Royalties Income Fund paid a special distribution of $0.05 per unit along with its monthly distribution of $0.155 per unit.

Cominar REIT did not pay a distribution as an all cash offer of $11.75 CAD per unit transaction was voted on by unitholders of the REIT.  

As part of the Transaction, Cominar has agreed that distributions for October, November and December, 2021 will be suspended. If the Transaction has not closed by January 15, 2022, Cominar intends to reinstate the distribution in respect of the second half of January, 2022 payable in February, 2022 to unitholders of record on January 31, 2022 and for each month thereafter.

I will update my dividend income tab with the new amount. I will include my option premium income also. It is great to see money from passive income sources deposited into my brokerage account every single month.

Note: Any activity in my RRSP account is not included in these totals.

How was your dividend income for December 2021?
