Frequently asked questions

What does DST stand for?

DST stands for daylight savings time. It occurs in Canada and the United States and moves the clocks forward by one hour in the warmer summer months to allow for more extended daylight. The clocks are then turned back one hour in the fall, allowing for a shorter period of sunlight during the colder months.

Why are there different time zones?

Time zones were created because when clocks were first invented, most places set their clocks based on the sun's rising and setting—creating time zones allowed each different region to mark their time based on the rising sun. Each degree of longitude on the globe marks a four-minute difference of time as determined by the sun's position on the earth, meaning that the sun will have just risen at one location. Simultaneously, at the following longitudinal line, the sunrise will not take place for another four minutes.

Time and specific time zones also became extremely important with the rise of the railroad. Having trains that ran on time and whose arrival could be accurately determined created further need for strict time guidelines.

What is UTC?

UTC stands for universal time coordinated, and it is the global time and date that all clocks and time zones are set against.

Why don't time zones follow the lines of longitude?

It is a common misconception that the time zones around the world follow the globe's longitudinal lines. Most time zones follow country borders and land boundaries instead. This makes it much easier for political and business communications to occur without concern for time differences.
