daylight time sayings facts
Do the clocks go back in Canada?
In the regions of Canada where daylight saving time is used, it begins on the second Sunday of March at 2 a.m. and ends on the first Sunday in November at 2 a.m. As a result, daylight saving time lasts in Canada for a total of 34 weeks (238 days) every year, or about 65 percent of the entire year.

Do we lose an hour of sleep?
Although we gain an extra hour of daylight, we also lose an hour of sleep if we are not prepared. Moving our clocks can disrupt our sleep patterns. In general, "losing" an hour in the Spring is more difficult to adjust to than "gaining" an hour in the Autumn when we move the clocks back one hour.

How does daylight savings work?
Daylight saving time is a changing of the clocks that typically begins in spring and ends in fall in what is often referred to as "spring forward" and "fall back." Under the conditions of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, daylight saving time starts on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November.

When did Canada go to Daylight Savings time?
Canada first observed Daylight Saving Time in 1908. Canada has observed DST for 111 years between 1908 and 2023 (DST in at least one location). Previous time with no Daylight Saving Time was 1913.
