Daylight saving time 2022: When do the clocks spring forward in Ontario?
Daylight saving time 2022 will begin on Sunday night when clocks spring forward in Ontario.
The time change in Ontario will happen at 2 a.m. on March 13.
After the time change, the sun will set in the Greater Toronto area around 7:20 p.m on Sunday.
The longest day of the year will take place on June 21 when the sun will set in Toronto at 9:03 p.m.
In Nov. 2020, Ontario passed legislation that would end the bi-annual changing of the clock, making daylight saving time permanent in the province.
Although the bill has received royal assent, it has yet to be proclaimed into force by the Lieutenant Governor. This will only happen if both New York and Quebec make the same change.
According to experts, some people will experience a shock to their bodies’ internal clock when the time changes, much like the jet lag experienced after flying across time zones.
Research shows that the disruption to the internal clock can cause increased rates of heart attacks, stroke, weight gain, anxiety and contribute to workplace injuries and traffic collisions.
