SD&G – You’ll get an extra hour of sleep tonight (Saturday) as we “fall back” for winter.

Daylight saving time ends this weekend across many areas of Canada and right here in SD&G.

Saskatchewan is the exception which stays on standard time year-round, as well as select areas of British Columbia, parts of northwestern Ontario, some areas of Quebec and Southampton Island in Nunavut.

Make sure to turn your clocks and watches back one hour before you go to bed tonight (Saturday).

Officials say it’s also a good time to check the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.

Daylight saving time officially ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 5.

We will be on standard time until Mar. 10, 2024 – about four months from now.
