What Time Canada


Canada is  Located in the northern part of the continent America , it extends from the Atlantic to the Pacific and northward into the Arctic Ocean. Canada is the worlds world's second-largest country by total area, and its common border with the United States is the longest land border in the world. Canada is wonderful and attractive to visit and has many places to see. There are a lot of hotels where you'll stay, and there are a lot of eateries too.  All these things make Canada a very familiar place to live in.

If you want to truly see the natural beauty of Canada, come to Newfoundland and Labrador. The province sits on an island surrounded by the ocean, making it an excellent place for whale watching (in season). It is also the only Canadian province that follows its time zone, which is 30 minutes behind Eastern Standard Time (EST) and Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) – known as Newfoundland Standard Time (NST)

Time Zone of Canada

Canada's time zones are officially defined by geographic boundaries, with the corresponding official observing or "clock" times. All zones maintain the same hour throughout the year, but local time is not supported for areas outside of time zones.
For example, Fort Simpson observes Mountain Time now but stays on Pacific Standard Time (moving forward one hour) when on Mountain Time. The Time zone is divided into six spans in Canada.

Pacific Time Zone
The Pacific Time Zone observes standard time by subtracting eight hours from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC−08:00). The clock time in this zone is based on the mean solar time of the 120th meridian west of the Greenwich Observatory. In terms of daylight saving time, the area ranges from UTC−08:00 in the summer to UTC−07:00 in the winter.

Mountain Time Zone
Mountain Standard Time (MST) GMT−07:00 and Mountain Daylight Time (MDT) GMT−06:00 are observed in Canada. MS Time zone spans 2 hours up to 3 hours behind Coordinated Universal Time. It is one of Canada's two official time zones, applied to British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Yukon, and Northwest Territories.

Central Time Zone
Central Standard Time (CST) is a time zone in North America that covers most of the central part of Canada, from eastern Manitoba to western Nunavut. Central Daylight Time (CDT) is observed during the summer, except for a small swath of northern Saskatchewan and a sliver of very north Quebec, which uses Eastern Standard Time year-round.

Eastern Time Zone
Eastern Standard Time (EST) GMT−05:00 and Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) GMT−04:00 is the predominant time zone in North America. It is broken into eastern, central, and western zones. As of 2011, it is used in 28 states, with its most notable center in Canada.

Atlantic Time Zone
Atlantic Standard Time (AST) GMT−04:00 and Atlantic Daylight Time (ADT) GMT−03:00: The Atlantic time zone or Atlantic time is a time zone encompassing the portion of the Canadian provinces and territories located along the Atlantic coast.


There are plenty of time zones to be considered for meeting or traveling. I hope this information is helpful for you. I hope you are not confused about which time zone you have to meet your friends, colleagues, or relatives are located at
