Time Change tonight – except for the Peace Region

This is the weekend most Canadians switch from standard time to daylight time.

Before going to bed tonight they’ll need to turn your clocks and watches ahead one hour.

The main Canadian exception is Saskatchewan, which is on standard time year-round.

However, this area is also the exception as we effectively remain on daylight time year-round.

In a 1974 referendum vote, Peace River Regional District Communities voted to change our time zone to Mountain Standard Time all year round.

The referendum had four options on it, including the Mountain Standard Time and Mountain Standard with Daylight Savings Time.

Most residents wanted the second option, but accidentally voted for Mountain Standard Time without Daylight Savings Time.
