TELUS (TSX: T)

Quarterly dividend increase to $0.5050 per share, up 7.1 per cent for the year
As a result of these investments and the TELUS team's strong and consistent performance, we are increasing our quarterly dividend for the second time in 2017 to $0.5050 per share. This represents the fourteenth time since 2011 that we have raised our dividend, and reflects the continuation of our successful three year annual dividend growth program targeting between seven and 10 per cent growth from 2017 through to 2019. Our track record of delivering on our industry-leading shareholder-friendly initiatives continues to generate significant value for our shareholders. Notably, TELUS has now returned $14.8 billion to shareholders, including $9.6 billion in dividends, representing $25 per share since 2004

Corby Spirit & Wine Ltd. (TSX:CSW_A) (TSX:CSW_B)

The Corby Board of Directors today also declared a dividend of $0.22 per share payable on December 8, 2017 on the Voting Class A Common Shares and Non-Voting Class B Common Shares of the Company to shareholders of record as at the close of business on November 24, 2017.

The dividend is up from the previous quarter of $0.21 per share.

The nice thing about Corby is that occasionally they also give investors a special dividend. One of the reasons I own shares in this company.
