The clock is ticking on Daylight Saving Time (DST)
Most of Canada will fall back on Sunday, November 7, which means an extra hour of sleep, as clocks go back one hour at 2 a.m.
Yukon, most of Saskatchewan, and some parts of Quebec and British Columbia stay on standard time.
Last fall the Ontario government passed legislation that would end the twice-yearly changing of the clocks, making DST permanent in the province. However, Ontario will not go alone. For change to happen, Quebec and New York state will have to agree to make the move at the same time.
Jeremy Roberts, MPP for Ottawa West-Nepean tabled the Time Amendment Act in October 2020.
During debate on his bill, Roberts cited studies indicating negative health effects and productivity loss related to the time changes.
British Columbia politicians passed a similar bill in 2019, but the clock is still ticking. The province won’t act on the legislation as some western American states have not jumped on board.
