March 07, 2007— Ottawa, Ontario

Starting in 2007, clocks following the new North American standard for Daylight Saving Time are to be turned forward by one hour on the second Sunday in March and turned back on the first Sunday of November.

Canadian provinces and territories have announced that this standard will replace their previous practice (from 1987 to 2006, DST was from the first Sunday of April to the last Sunday in October).

Note that for 2007, the time difference between Europe and North America will change for a period of 3 weeks instead of 1 week (2 weeks in March and 1 week in November) and will be in the opposite sense to past experience.
