British Columbians are invited to share their views on how time should be observed in B.C.

Most areas of B.C. “spring forward” into daylight saving time during summer months and “fall back” to standard time in the winter. 

“As our neighbours in the western United States move toward permanent daylight saving time, it’s a good time to think about what will work best for British Columbia,” said Premier John Horgan. “I invite people to consider our options and take part in an online survey that will help us decide whether to leave things as they are or if it’s time to make a change.”

The online survey will be available from June 24, 2019, to July 19, 2019, at the link below. The survey website has background information on the history of time observance in British Columbia and the impact of various options, such as changes to the timings of sunrise and sunset at different times of year. The survey takes approximately five minutes to complete. 

In addition to the online survey, organizations and individuals are invited to provide written submissions about time observance, which affects many key B.C. industries, such as agriculture and transportation. 

“I know many people will have strong preferences on this complex question, and this is an opportunity to express them and help government decide our next steps,” Premier Horgan said. “As we monitor what’s happening in other jurisdictions, I look forward to input from British Columbians on how to set our clocks throughout the year.”
