Happy Daylight Saving Time (For You In Manitoba)!

Happy Daylight Saving Time! Kinda. As we here in Saskatchewan enjoy the consistency of no time change, you might be in Manitoba and are springing forward and adjusting your clocks. It’s always interesting when you live near a border and have to deal with different time zones. I experience this when I visit my girlfriend in Swan River. Maybe you cross the provinces for work. Here are some fun pros and cons of traveling across the border from Saskatchewan to Manitoba now that Manitoba is an hour ahead:


  1. Extra Hour of Daylight: If you’re heading from Saskatchewan to Manitoba, you get to enjoy an extra hour of daylight in the evening. This means more time to explore, go for a walk, or simply relax outdoors.
  2. Time Zone Curiosity: It’s always fun to experience a different time zone, even if it’s just for a short while. Crossing the border into gives you a taste of what it’s like to be in a different time zone.
  3. Time Travel: Okay, so it’s not really time travel, but it can feel like it when you cross the border and suddenly find yourself an hour ahead, or an hour back in time when coming to Sask. It’s a fun little mind game to play with yourself.


  1. Switching time zones can be confusing, especially if you’re not used to it. Make sure you set your clocks ahead when you cross the border, or you might find yourself running late, or an hour early for whatever it is.
  2. If you’re only in Manitoba or Saskatchewan for a short visit, adjusting to the new time zone can mess with your sleep schedule. You might fall asleep an hour earlier or later than expected. One hour isn’t a huge deal thankfully!
  3. If you’re meeting up with friends or family on both sides of the border, coordinating schedules can be a bit tricky. Make sure everyone is on the same page when it comes to the time difference. You’ll have to start saying “12pm my time or your time?”
