or 5% of the public float of 67,290,467  common shares as at May 31, 2013.  As 
at the same date, there were 73,161,732 common shares issued and outstanding.

The repurchase program -  starting on June17, 2013  and ending no later  than 
June16,2014- will  be  conducted  through  the facilities  of  the  TSX  or 
alternative  trading  systems,  if  eligible,   and  will  conform  to   their 

The average daily trading volume of the common shares over the period  between 
December1,2012 and  May31,  2013, as  calculated  per the  TSX  rules,  was 
267,484common shares.  Consequently,  under  TSX  rules,  Dollarama  will  be 
allowed to purchase  daily, through the  facilities of the  TSX, a maximum  of 
66,871common shares representing 25% of such average daily trading volume. In
addition, Dollarama may make, once per week, a block purchase (as such term is
defined in the TSX Company Manual) of common shares not directly or indirectly
owned by  insiders of  Dollarama, in  accordance with  TSX rules.  The  shares 
purchased pursuant to the normal course issuer bid will be cancelled.

Purchases under the normal  course issuer bid  will be made  by means of  open 
market transactions or such other means as the TSX or a securities  regulatory 
authority may  permit,  including  pre-arranged  crosses,  exempt  offers  and 
private agreements under an issuer bid exemption order issued by a  securities 
regulatory authority.

The price to  be paid by  Dollarama for any  common share will  be the  market 
price at the time of acquisition, plus brokerage fees, or such other price  as 
the TSX may  permit. In the  event that Dollarama  purchases common shares  by 
pre-arranged crosses, exempt  offers, block purchases  or private  agreements, 
the purchase price of  the common shares may  be, and will be  in the case  of 
purchases by private  agreements, at  a discount to  the market  price of  the 
common shares at the time of the acquisition.

Dollarama also announced that it has  entered into an automatic purchase  plan 
agreement ("APP") with a broker to allow for the purchase of its common shares
under the NCIB at times when Dollarama  ordinarily would not be active in  the 
market due to self-imposed  trading blackout periods.  Before entering into  a 
blackout  period,  Dollarama  may,  but  is  not  required  to,  instruct  the 
designated broker to  make purchases  under the  NCIB in  accordance with  the 
terms of the APP. Such purchases will be determined by the broker in its  sole 
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.

Under the normal course issuer bid which will end on June 14, 2013,  Dollarama 
purchased and  cancelled 2,583,264  common shares,  representing 3.5%  of  the 
common shares issued and outstanding as of June 1, 2012, at a weighted average
price of $60.36 per common share.

The Board of Directors of Dollarama believes that the purchase by Dollarama of
its common shares represents an appropriate and desirable use of its available
cash to increase shareholder value.
