We Spring Forward This Sunday




Manitoba Municipal Relations reminds all Manitobans that daylight saving time will start in the province early on March 12, when clocks move forward one hour.


Under the Official Time Act, daylight saving time starts on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November.


The official time change will occur at 2 a.m., Sunday, March 12, at which time clocks will move forward to 3 a.m.


The change from daylight saving time in the spring to standard time in the fall will continue in Manitoba until neighbouring jurisdictions pass legislation adopting permanent daylight saving time. Previously planned public engagement will begin when neighbouring jurisdictions take action, to ensure the perspectives gathered from Manitobans are timely and relevant. The province will continue to monitor developments and evaluate the best possible options for Manitoba.
