TORONTO Nov 8 (Reuters) - Telus Corp, one of Canada's biggest telecom companies, posted a 10 percent rise in third-quarter profit on Friday, helped by strong growth in its wireless unit as well as steady customer additions for television and Internet service.

Operating revenue rose 3.6 percent to C$2.87 billion.
