Sorry I hide my true identity but I'm a physicist/engineer, native contrarian and idea generator. I am an eclectic dividend investor with motto "In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash" applied to companies I invest in. I like to read /and read a lot - did you look on my SA photo 8-)? /... More

    Data from Toronto Stock Exchage (TMX.COM) show that following companies increased  dividends during last 5 years (with unknown patterns):

    I also tried to collect dividend data for companies included in The Claymore S&P/TSX Canadian Dividend ETF (TSX:CDZ) that suppose to be similar to David Fish CCC list.
    Some of companies included in CDZ are traded in USA and Canada:
    Company Name Symbol (Canada) Symbol (NYSE:USA)
    CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAY CO . CNR CNI
    CANADIAN PACIFIC RAILWAY LTD . CP CP
    ENBRIDGE INC ENB ENB
    IMPERIAL OIL LTD . IMO IMO
    TRANSCANADA CORP . TRP TRP
    ROGERS COMMUNICATIONS INC - CL B RCI/B RCI
    SHAW COMMUNICATIONS INC SJR/B SJR
    TELUS CORP . T TU
    others trade in Canada only.

    Unfortunately I was able to figure out dividends (at Yahoo.com) only for about half of companies traded in Canada. The following companies steady increased their dividends during last 5 + years:

    Company Name Symbol (Canada) Symbol @ Yahoo
    CAMECO CORP . CCO CCO.to
    CANADIAN NATURAL RESOURCES LTD . CNQ CNQ.to
    CANADIAN UTILITIES LTD CL A NON-VTG CU CU.to
    COGECO CABLE INC SUB-VTG CCA CCA.to
    COGECO INC SUB-VTG CGO CGO.to
    ENSIGN ENERGY SERVICES INC . ESI ESI.to
    FINNING INTERNATIONAL INC . FTT FTT.to
    FORTIS INC . FTS FTS.to
    HOME CAPITAL GROUP INC . HCG HCG.to
    INTACT FINANCIAL CORP . IFC IFC.to
    KEYERA CORP . KEY KEY.to
    PASON SYSTEMS INC . PSI PSI.to
    SAPUTO INC . SAP SAP.to
    SHOPPERS DRUG MART CORP . SC SC.to
    SNC-LAVALIN GROUP INC . SNC SNC.to
    TALISMAN ENERGY INC . TLM TLM.to
    TIM HORTONS INC THI THI.to
    TOROMONT INDUSTRIES LTD . TIH TIH.to

    I was not able to find dividends history for other firms included in Canadian Dividend ETF at yahoo.com and I did not tried to find dividends history for other companies from TMX list.  
    Toronto Stock Exchage provides histories for prices (in CAN$) for each stock but at least I didn't find dividends histories. 
    If you know good (preferably single) source for such info - please email me.

    SDS, that's a long list. I'm sure it must have taken a long time to cook up. Thanks for posting it!
