Online Survey Launched To Learn What BC Locals Think About Daylight Saving Time

Daylight Saving Time

It’s something that we all either look forward to, dread, or just don’t pay much attention to. To find out what British Columbians think about daylight saving time, an online survey has been launched by the provincial government.

As it currently stands, most areas of B.C. “spring forward” an hour into daylight saving time during summer months and “fall back” an hour 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.

The online survey, which was launched today, June 24th, will be available to fill out until July 19th, 2019.

The survey website also has some useful background information on the history of time observance in British Columbia and what impact proposed changes would have.
