The Mergent Canadian Dividend Achievers™ Index tracks the companies that meet the requirements to be "Canadian Dividend Achievers." The companies must be incorporated in Canada, trade on a major Canadian exchange (such as Vancouver or Toronto), and have increased their annual dividend payments every year for the past five or more years.
The Index is calculated by market capitalization.
So, simply, this is the Canadian version of the Mergent Broad Dividend Achievers.
These companies have a long history of continually raising the amounts of their annual stock dividends. They are the best dividend stocks in their category.
47 Companies in the Mergent Canadian Dividend Achievers Index:

The broad Canadian stock market is measured by the S and P/TSX (Toronto Stock Exchange) Composite Canadian Benchmark index. The Canadian Dividend Achievers Index generally outperforms this bench market index.
