I don't get it.... CNRL has a pile of debt to retire. Would seem to be better to put it there for a few years first.

Unilever (UN, UL) raised their dividend 12% to .3585 EUR. A quick look at their investor page shows a planned dividend of .38 USD per ADR planned for June. This represents an increase over last quarter, although I guess its subject to currency exchanges as well, I can see that their dividend history has fluctuated over time.

One that slipped through the cracks, Omega Healthcare (OHI) upped their dividend by .01 c, or 1.6% over the previous quarter. Not much on a percentage basis, but they seem intent on upping every quarter as opposed to annually, so i'm OK with it.
Omega Healthcare Investors (NYSE:OHI) declares $0.63/share quarterly dividend, 1.6% increase from prior dividend of $0.62.

BCE reports wireless strength as IPTV, Internet subscribers slow - The Globe and Mail
The company also said it was increasing its annual dividend by 5.1 per cent to $2.87 per share.

Added: That's already in my spreadsheet, so it must have been announced earlier.

I believe this was missed from April 27th. I'm not a trader but I've been in and out of this equity twice in the last few years due to circumstances beyond my control.

And proceeded to retreat in stock price today (to be fair so did TRP). I think all these clowns are falling over each other in a race on dividend increases... without due attention to the balance sheet. I hope we are not in for a rude awakening someday
