HOME ABOUT NOVA SCOTIA Time Zones




Time Zones

There are six time zones in Canada. From east to west they are Newfoundland Time Zone, Atlantic Time Zone, Eastern Time Zone, Central Time Zone, Mountain Time Zone, and the Pacific Time Zone.

Nova Scotia is in the Atlantic Time Zone, which is Greenwich Mean Time minus four hours (GMT-4:00).

Each time zone is one hour different from the next, except Newfoundland Time Zone, which is different by one half hour.

For example...

If the time is 3:00 p.m. in Nova Scotia, the time is:

  • 3:30 p.m. in Newfoundland;
  • 2:00 p.m. in Ontario (Eastern Time Zone);
  • 1:00 p.m. in Manitoba (Central Time Zone);
  • 12:00 p.m. in Alberta (Mountain Time Zone); and
  • 11:00 a.m. in British Columbia (Pacific Time Zone).

Daylight Savings Time

Twice a year, all clocks must be adjusted by one hour. On the second Sunday of March, clocks move forward one hour. This is called Daylight Savings Time. On the first Sunday of November, clocks are moved back by one hour to Standard Time. Most radio and television stations broadcast reminders to reset clocks in March and November.
