Canada spans 6 time zones, four of them shared with the USA (Eastern Time, Central Time, Mountain Time and Pacific Time).
The Atlantic coastal provinces use Atlantic Time Zone and Newfoundland has its own Time Zone.
View below current local time in a representative city for each time zone.

Time Zones and Daylight Saving Time have usually been regulated by the Canadian provincial and territorial governments. Exceptions may exist in certain Canadian municipalities.
Clocks in Canada are turned forward by one hour on the second Sunday in March and turned back on the first Sunday of November.
