Canada Time Zones
What are the time zone limits in Canada? There are 6 Canada daylight saving time zone with 6 Canada daylight saving time zone. As in the USA, the Canadian time zone is often designated by its common name without making a distinction between the terms daylight saving time and daylight saving time.
As an example, Central Time (CT) relates to Central Standard Time (CST) or Central Daylight Time (CDT), whichever is currently in use. Please note: In these time zone, when daylight saving time begins and ends, the time changes in your area. Above time zone is used during other seasons.
After the next time the time is changed, they become activated again when summer time begins or ends. But not all areas in Canada are observing summer time. Neufundland, in the easternmost provinces of Canada, Newfoundland and Labrador, follows its own time zones. Default time is Newfoundland Default Time (NST), so UTC-3:30. Daylight Time (NDT), the daylight saving time of the islands, is UTC-2:30.
There are two reasons for the 30-minute time zone: Newfoundland is almost exactly 3.5 hrs away from the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), which is calculated on the basis of the zero meridian of 0° latitude, with respect to the median time. Second, Newfoundland was a sovereign state in its own right when time belts were created in Canada.

In Canada, the government advises the use of the 24-hour timer, which is used in many areas such as timetables, car park clocks and traffic information. Spokespersons of French-speaking Canada have fully adopted this system, but many English-speaking Canadaers use the 12-hour watch in their daily language, even when they read from a 24-hour indicator, similar to using the 24-hour watch in the UK.
Yukon time zones (UTC-09:00) comprised Yukon until 1975. By 1983, the area ( at that time only a small part of Alaska) was reorganized to include most of Alaska and changed to Alaska Time Area. 1988 Newfoundland used "double summer time" from 3 April to 30 October, which means that the time was brought forward by 2hrs.
The whole of Newfoundland and the South Labrador, using UTC-3:30 as their default time zones, used UTC-1:30. It was not until 1988 that this occurred, and the provincial government only adjusted its time by one additional clock for summer time. Summer time is currently observable in all ten counties and three territory, but with a few exclusions in several counties and Nunavut, most of them Saskatchewan, which despite its geographical location in the Mountain Time area, monitors CST throughout the year.
According to the Constitution of Canada, timing legislation is a strictly province issue. Daylight Savings Time across Canada has in fact been tightly or fully synced with compliance in the United States since the end of the sixties to foster unified economical and societal interactions. In 1987, when the United States prolonged summer time until the first Sunday in April, all DST observers in Canada's federal states followed to imitate it.
In the following days, the last amendment of the United States (Energy Policy Act of 2005), which added parts of March and November as of 2007, was adopted by the various counties and territories: Zaskatchewan - no formal measures taken since almost the entire county has not switched its watches to daylight saving time (they stay on CST all year round).
The few places in the county that monitor summer time (Lloydminster and the environs spanning the Alberta boundary and Alberta's Mountain Time and Creighton unofficially monitoring summer time due to its close vicinity to the Manitoba border), however, like the remainder of the county, adhere to the above March-November timetable.
