May 5 (Reuters) - Telus Corp , one of Canada's three big telecom providers, said it would sell a 35 percent stake in outsourcing service provider Telus International in a deal that values the unit at C$1.2 billion ($934.80 million).

The company said it would sell the business to Baring Private Equity Asia and use proceeds of about C$600 million to expand its wireless and wireline networks in Canada. ($1 = 1.2837 Canadian dollars) (Reporting by Anet Josline Pinto in Bengaluru; Editing by Shounak Dasgupta)
