Sunday, March 13, 2016: US & Canada to Spring Forward
People will have to set their clocks 1 hour forward from 2 am (02:00) to 3 am (03:00), local time, as Daylight Saving Time (DST) begins in these countries.
Residents of northern border cities in Mexico follow the US's DST schedule. They will also be springing forward by an hour at the same time as their American and Canadian counterparts.
DST Turns 100 Years Old
Even though Thunder Bay in Ontario, Canada was the first place in the world to use Daylight Saving Time, Germany was the first country to implement a nationwide DST policy on April 30, 1916, in the midst of the First World War.
