We have a consistent track record of delivering annual dividend increases, and our continuing goal is to deliver superior shareholder returns through capital appreciation and dividends.

Enbridge has paid dividends for over 66 years to its shareholders. In December 2020, we announced a 3% increase to our dividend per share, increasing the quarterly dividend to $0.835. This translates into $3.34 dividend per share on an annualized basis for 2021. Over the past 26 years, the dividend has grown at an average compound annual growth rate of 10%.

Equally important, our dividend growth has not come at the expense of our financial strength as our dividend payout ratio is expected to remain within our target dividend payout ratio which is between 60 - 70% percent of DCF, providing a healthy balance between returning income to shareholders and retaining income for reinvestment in new growth opportunities.
