If you hold stock for the long term like I do, you will have companies going through bad times. The thing is that if you a diversified portfolio, all your stocks will not be going through tough times at the same time. In different economic situations, some companies will thrive and some will have a tough time.

The next chart gives you the rate of dividend growth per year for the periods shown. If the period is shorter than the heading I put this information in the "To Year" column. For example for Allied Properties I have growth per year for years 5, 10 and 14. Over the past 5 years dividends have grown at 2.39% per year , over 10 years at 2.04% per and over 14 years at 4.51% per year.
With the exception of Granite REIT, the longer durations on most companies have higher dividend growth rates. For example, RIOCAN REIT's dividends grow by 5.30% over the past 23 years, but only 0.43% per year over the past 5 years. That is because it has not had dividend increases lately.
|REIT||To Yr||DG 5||DG 10||DG 15||DG 20||DG 25|
|Allied Properties REIT||14||2.39%||2.04%||4.51%|
|Canadian Real Estate||23||4.74%||3.45%||2.97%||2.98%||5.03%|
|First Capital Realty||22||1.46%||1.21%||2.43%||2.85%||7.37%|
|H & R REIT||20||3.27%||0.07%||0.94%||3.60%|
|Melcor Developments Inc.||25||3.71%||4.81%||12.69%||14.87%||13.56%|
The next chart gives the total returns per year for the shown time periods. Total Return includes both capital gains and dividends. Here again, if I do not have a full period of data I put the last period covered in the "To Year" column. For Allied Properties I have Total Returns for the periods of 5, 10 and 14 years. Over the past 14 years Allied Properties have a Total Return of 15.30% per year.
Here again most of the REITs had better past growth. The exceptions are Granite REIT and First Service Corp (which just started dividends 3 years ago.) For example, Canadian REIT grew by 16.28% per year over the past 23 years, but only 5.20% over the past 5 years.
|REIT||To Yr||TR 5||TR 10||TR 15||TR 20||TR 25|
|Allied Properties REIT||14||9.02%||12.37%||15.30%|
|Canadian Real Estate||23||5.20%||9.26%||15.39%||13.20%||16.28%|
|First Capital Realty||22||8.18%||6.31%||13.24%||10.11%||13.45%|
|H & R REIT||20||3.51%||6.43%||10.90%||12.09%|
|Melcor Developments Inc.||25||6.33%||0.64%||17.35%||20.86%||17.21%|
I also thought it would be handy to show the last dividend increase and this is in the chart below.
|REIT||Last Inc||Inc %||Comment|
|Allied Properties REIT||2018||1.96%||No increase in 2017, but one in 2016|

|FirstService Corp.||2018||10.20%||Paid in US$|
|Granite REIT||2018||4.60%||Big changes occurred in 2012|
|H & R REIT||2017||2.20%||Increases only 3 of last 5 years|
|Melcor Developments Inc.||2017||8.30%||After 2016 Decrease of 20%|
|RIOCAN REIT||2018||2.13%||First since 2013|
|SmartCentres REIT||2017||2.94%||Increases only 3 of last 5 years, last 3|

|Canadian Real Estate||$50.31||$1.87||3.72%|

There is a site called http://reitreport.ca/canadian-reits/ hat list all Canadian REITs and their profile. The Profile basically says what the REIT invests in. On the Real Property Association of Canada you can find a definition of a REIT.
