TORONTO, Dec. 16, 2013 /CNW/ - True North Apartment Real Estate Investment Trust (TSX: TN.UN) (the "REIT") today announced a cash distribution of $0.05825 per trust unit ("Unit") for the period from December 1, 2013 and ending December 31, 2013.

Unitholders can participate in the REIT's unitholder Distribution Reinvestment Plan ("DRIP"). Eligible investors registered in the DRIP will have their monthly cash distributions used to purchase additional Units, at a 3% discount to the weighted average closing price of the Units, for the five trading days immediately preceding the date of distribution declared by the REIT.
