Time in Canada
The exact time in Canada is based on the time zones for Canada. We will always try to give you the exact time for Canada. There might be slight differences, since the time zones for Canada might change due to daylight savings time (DST).
Time changes in Canada are usually done to adapt citizen and tourist activity to the solar cycle. This allows for greater usage of daylight, reducing dependency on electricity. That is why the time is sent ahead one hour in the spring for Canada, and falls back one hour in the fall for Canada. Adding an extra hour of daylight helps Canada to improve its tourism and depend less on Canada's electricity supplies.
