The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador has pending changes to
modify the hour for daylight savings time to come into effect in
November 2011.  This modification would change the time from 12:01AM to
2:00AM on the dates of the switches of Daylight Savings Time to/from
Standard Time.


As a matter of reference, in Canada provinces have the authority of
setting time zone information.  The legislation has passed our
legislative body ("The House of Assembly") and is awaiting the
proclamation to come into effect.  You may find this information at: and
search within that web page for "Standard Time (Amendment) Act".  The
Act may be found at:


We would appreciate if we could receive some guidance as to:

*         The official mechanism for implementing this change;

*         The timeframe for the implementation of the change within the
TZ sources.


Thank you.
