CALGARY, ALBERTA - Enbridge (NYSE:ENB) Inc., a leader in energy transportation and distribution in North America and Europe, has declared a 3.1% increase in its quarterly common share dividend. This announcement marks the company's 29th consecutive year of dividend growth, underscoring its commitment to delivering consistent shareholder value.

The Board's decision to raise dividends was finalized on Tuesday. The new dividend rate will be available to shareholders who are registered by February 15, 2024. The payment of the quarterly dividend is scheduled for March 1, 2024.

In addition to the common share dividend, Enbridge detailed dividends for various series of preference shares. The dividends declared include Series L at $0.36612, Series R at $0.41898, and Series 5 at $0.33596, among others.
