  1. Daylight Saving Time begins on March 10th this year.
  2. Spring officially starts on March 20th this year.

This year's calender informs us that spring will offically start on March 20th, and the Daylight Saving Time change will occur on March 10th, however despite these changes most of Canada definitely will still be experiencing winter.
