TFSA Monthly Dividend Income (November 2021)

Our annual goal is to maximize the contribution limits of our TFSA beginning of each year. We aim to contribute the maximum allowable limit every first week of January.

Here are the TFSA contribution limits by year since its inception.

  • 2009 – $5,000
  • 2010 – $5,000
  • 2011 – $5,000
  • 2012 – $5,000
  • 2013 – $5,500
  • 2014 – $5,500
  • 2015 – $10,000
  • 2016 – $5,500
  • 2017 – $5,500
  • 2018 – $5,500
  • 2019 – $6,000
  • 2020 – $6,000
  • 2021 – $6,000

Total contribution room = $75,500 


For the month of October we kept all our TFSA holdings and didn’t not sell any security. Check here Our Total DGI TFSA Portfolio and projected annual income.


Here’s the list of companies that pay dividends in November. We own few similar securities in our TFSA portfolio and a few different ones.


November has brought us $563.88 of passive income in our TFSA accounts alone. This has shown a 15.6% YOY growth compared to same period in 2020.

While we only got paid twice from work in the month of October (active income) yet we received 26 paychecks from different companies for the same month without spending a single hour at work (passive income). Our ultimate goal is to live off passive income through dividends without harvesting its capital.


The line graph clearly shows how we made adjustments in our TFSA portfolio. Firstly, In 2019 we owned only a few dividend stocks and mainly focused on monthly dividend payers. Secondly, the last quarter of 2019 and beginning of 2020 prior to the March coronavirus stock market crash we started to diversify our portfolio by selling some shares of our monthly dividend payers and mixing it with quarterly paying dividend stocks covering all sectors in TSX. Finally, by 2021 by just keeping our TFSA holdings we are now seeing slow steady growth in our dividend income.

Many DIY dividend investors understand that there are months that have slower dividend distributions from companies hence the fluctuation of the monthly income.

Monthly Goals

We aim to reinvest our dividends on a monthly basis. Here’s what we bought for the month of November in our TFSA portfolio for our October income of $563.88 plus proceeds from our CGO positions of $2,666.85.

Surprised to see that your TFSA divs have decreased from 2020 to 2021
I’ll be just <$12K on divs in my TFSA for this year. They have increased every year since inception.
Who are you using for trades (buy/sell)? I hope a no fee broker.
I try to purchase (CIBC) enough shares that my in/out costs are covered by the second dividend payment.

I had a lot of IPL as well. I didn’t lose any money overall. Was sad to see them sell out. Until the div cut in 2020 they were great. Had held them since 2003 so those shares had paid for themselves a couple of times over. Still made a little money on the sale. Holding nine stocks in the TFSA at present. I usually sit on the money until there is enough to buy sufficient shares that would cover the in/out trading cost with the first div.. Usually hold long term but not adverse to selling a high flyer… Read more »
