CANADIAN TIME ZONES



If you are confused by all the Canadian Time Zones,
I hope these pages will help to reduce the confusion . . . . read on!

Canada encompasses six of the world's 24 time zones and the Province of Newfoundland & Labrador is 1/2 hour ahead of the other Atlantic Provinces.

Daylight Saving Time is in effect from the second Sunday in March, when the clocks in most of Canada are advanced by one hour, until the first Sunday in November.

The Province of Saskatchewan, however, does not put their clocks forward during that time.

If you are traveling to Canada or phoning friends there, below are some of the local times across this country.

A special thank you goes to those readers who helped with the building of this page,
who were far more knowledgeable than I,
especially Trey Wedge - Thank You!
