ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Dollarama is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Dollarama's environmental score
Environmental score: 6.05/100
Dollarama's environmental score of 6.05 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Dollarama is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Dollarama's social score

Dollarama share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 8.6% of net profits
Recently Dollarama has paid out, on average, around 8.6% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.26% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Dollarama shareholders could enjoy a 0.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Dollarama's case, that would currently equate to about C$0.211 per share.
While Dollarama's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Dollarama is investing more in its future growth.
Dollarama's most recent dividend payout was on 3 November 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 October 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Dollarama's shares ever split?
Dollarama's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 19 June 2018. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Dollarama shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dollarama shares which in turn could have impacted Dollarama's share price.
Dollarama share price volatility
