Case name
Ohayon v. Dollarama and others

Quebec Superior Court file #
500-06-001243-233 (Montreal)

If you purchased a product subject to an Ecofee (for example batteries, electronic products, light bulbs, or toys with batteries) from Dollarama in Québec between December 11, 2019 and July 4, 2023, or elsewhere in Canada between May 29, 2021 and July 4, 2023, you are a member of this class action and you are eligible to claim a gift card.

A proposed national Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit about prices advertised and charged by Dollarama for products subject to Ecofees it sold in Canada. The Plaintiff in the lawsuit alleged that Dollarama did not properly display the price of products subject to Ecofees and charged a total price or Ecofees higher than displayed for these products or allowed by law. Dollarama denies any liability or wrongdoing and no Court has concluded in any wrongdoing on its part. The Court will hold a hearing on April 9, 2024 to decide whether to approve the Settlement before any compensation is provided to Class Members.

Each eligible person may obtain a Gift Card with a maximum value of $15.00 that can be redeemed in any Dollarama store in Canada, does not expire and can be used in multiple transactions. You may link the Gift Card to your Dollarama mobile application which can be downloaded in the app store on your mobile phone. The value of each Gift card may be reduced depending on the total number of eligible claimants, such that the value of each Gift Card may be less than $15.00. In order to receive a Gift card, each eligible person must provide a valid e-mail address.

To claim a gift card as described above, you must first provide your e-mail address on this website by April 5th, 2024.

Following the settlement approval hearing on April 9, 2024, should the settlement be approved, you will be notified by e-mail when the claim form is available.
