Don’t forget to turn back your clocks this weekend for the end of daylight savings!
Halloween’s not the only big event this weekend. We can also look forward to turning our clocks back for the end of daylight savings time. The change will happen in the early hours of Sunday, November 1st, when we’ll go back by 1 hour at 2 AM.
So what does this mean for you? Well, not a whole lot. Daylight savings have been a thing in Ontario since 1918, so chances are you’re used to the changes. This weekend, we’ll be looking forward to an extra hour of sleep-in, as the extra hour will give us a brighter morning and earlier sunsets. Very nice.
Daylight savings should be cancelled this year, we don’t need an extra hour of 2020.

If you’re not a fan of the whole daylight savings business, we may have some good news for you. There is a chance the whole thing could come to an end, according to recent legislation that was passed by the province. If we stop with daylight savings, that’ll mean less sunlight in the morning but more in the afternoons. Nothing is official though. The change will only be made if both New York and Quebec get on board.
So don’t forget to turn back those clocks this weekend! We hope you enjoy your extra hour sleep-in the morning after Halloween.
