McGuinty Government Keeps Ontario Businesses In Sync
TORONTO, March 7 - Ontario clocks will "spring ahead" this Sunday morning under extended daylight saving time. Ontarians should turn their clocks ahead one hour before going to bed on Saturday night and make sure all computers and household devices show the right time on Sunday morning.
The United States passed a law in 2005 that extended daylight saving time by four weeks, starting in March 2007. To keep a smooth flow of goods and services across the border, Ontario was among the first in Canada to match daylight saving time schedules with our most important trading partner.
QUOTE
"Our new schedule means more daylight for families and more productivity for business," said Attorney General Chris Bentley.

QUICK FACTS
- Under the new schedule, daylight saving time begins on the second
Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November.
- All of Canada has moved to the new schedule, except Saskatchewan,
which does not use daylight saving time.
