discretion based on parameters established by Dollarama prior to the blackout 
period in accordance with TSX rules, applicable securities laws and the terms 
of the APP. The terms of the APP have been pre-cleared by the TSX. Outside of 
these pre-determined blackout periods, common shares will be purchased in 
accordance with management's discretion.
