There are quite a few dividend payers in Canada, but the ones that provide steady dividend increases and those companies that have been paying dividends for generations is a rather short list.  In that spirit, here are some Canadian stocks most dividend investors could potentially buy and forget* given they’ve paid steady dividends and tend to increase them routinely: Bank of Montreal (BMO) – paid dividends since 1829.
