Written by Ambrose O'Callaghan at The Motley Fool Canada

The Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) has become the favoured registered investment vehicle among Canadians since its inception in January 2009. One of the greatest qualities of the TFSA, besides the obvious tax-free gains break it offers, is its flexibility. On one hand, you can pursue a growth-oriented strategy that is very rewarding when you can pocket those monster gains. However, Canadians can also commit to an income-oriented investment strategy.

Today, we are going to explore this strategy and generate passive income with $40,000 we have available in our TFSA. Let’s jump in.

This company released its third-quarter (Q3) fiscal 2022 earnings on November 9. Keyera delivered net earnings of $123 million, or $0.56 per share — up from $70 million, or $0.32 per share, in the prior year. Meanwhile, it finished out the third quarter in a much-improved liquidity position.

Shares of Keyera closed at $28.91 on November 14. In this scenario, we can snatch up 460 shares for a purchase price of $13,298.60. This energy stock offers a monthly dividend of $0.16 per share. That represents a tasty 6.6% yield. TFSA investors can now generate monthly passive income of $73.60 going forward.

This stock has dropped 19% so far in 2022. That has pushed the stock into negative territory in the year-over-year period.

In Q3 2022, Timbercreek reported net mortgage investments of $1.25 billion compared to $1.15 billion in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Meanwhile, it posted adjusted net income and comprehensive income of $13.9 million — up marginally from $13.7 million in Q3 2021.
