Tawcan is a Canadian personal finance and dividend investing blog that chronicle my quest for financial independence and joyful life.

I started this blog to show it is possible to achieve financial independence as a single income family with two young kids while living in Vancouver Canada, one of the most expensive cities in the world.

My wife and I started building our dividend portfolio in 2011 after a financial epiphany.

Today, the portfolio generates over $2,250 dividends per month and covers over 55% of our expenses.

Our dream is to become financially independent in our 40s and live off dividends.
