Thursday, November 4th the Board of TELUS Corporation (TSX: T) announced a quarterly dividend increase of from CA$ 0.3162 to CA$ 0.3274 per share that’s payable January 4, 2022 to holders of record December 10, 2021. This represents a 3.54% increase over the last quarterly dividend.


It should be noted that this is the second increase in 2021. In May, TELUS increased from C$ 0.3112 to C$ 0.3162 or 1.61%, bringing the annual increase to 5.21 per cent.

Since I own 380 shares of TELUS, this will increase my portfolio's projected annual net dividend income by $ 10.19.


This increase was in line with my expectations, TELUS has published a multi-year dividend growth plan and this was in line with it.


This increase raises my YOC to 5.45%.
