CT Real Estate Investment Trust is an unincorporated, closed end real estate investment trust formed to own income producing commercial properties primarily located in Canada.

Its portfolio is comprised of over 350 retail properties, four industrial properties, one mixed-use commercial property, and one development property totaling approximately 29 million square feet of GLA. CT REIT is Canada’s premier net lease REIT and creates long-term value for unitholders by growing its portfolio of income producing properties and development projects, benefiting from its relationship with its most significant tenant and controlling unitholder, Canadian Tire Corporation (CTC).

CTC is a strong investment grade tenant, with annual rental growth built into long term leases. CT REIT benefits from CTC’s understandings of the continually evolving retail marketplace, helping to shape their strategy and guide their plans.

A very meaningful portion of growth is contractually built into CT REIT's structure through rent escalations and preferred access to additional properties required to support CTC's ongoing business requirements. This close association and alignment between them is a competitive differentiator that provides important insight into potential real estate acquisitions and development opportunities.

Additionally, located in each province and two territories, CT REIT’s properties are situated in highly desirable retail locations. Many are conveniently located near high traffic routes, highly visible from the street, easy to access, and have ample parking. The properties are geographically diverse with more than two-thirds of CT REIT’s rent coming from properties in large urban markets.

Use A Winning Investment Strategy

My portfolio is generating over 12% annual returns since 2009. It's not from the beginning of the year or from 2019, it's from 2009 !!! That's a consistent return which means using the rule of 72, I double my portfolio every 6 years.

My approach is simple but you need key data that I have cultivated with the Dividend Snapshot Screeners. No other investment services provide you with easy to understand data but also actionable data. No hidden magic.

In fact, I have tried all of the investment services for dividend investors like a crash test dummy of investment services. Just ask me, and you'll learn why there was nothing I could use out there and that's how the Dividend Snapshot Screeners were borned!
