Dollar Tree Stores Canada, Inc. (formerly Dollar Giant) is a Canadian variety store chain.

The company was incorporated in 2001 in Vancouver. On 11 October 2010, US variety store chain Dollar Tree, Inc. announced its acquisition of Dollar Giant for $52 million.[1][2]

At the time of the acquisition, Dollar Giant had about 85 retail outlets in the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario. Approximately 30 of its retail locations are located in British Columbia, making it the largest dollar store chain in that province. It was Canada's fourth largest operator of dollar stores. Dollar Tree has since rebranded all of its Dollar Giant stores to Dollar Tree. The company now operates 227 stores across Canada, concentrated in Western Canada and Ontario. Its Canadian merchandising team is located at 205 Courtney Park Dr. West (Unit 105), Mississauga, ON, L52 0A5 while the corporate offices remain in Burnaby BC.
