What Time Is It In Newfoundland and Labrador? There Are 3 Time Zones

For the most part, time Newfoundland and Labrador is divided simply by saying locations on the island of Newfoundland use the Newfoundland Time zone while locations in Labrador use the Atlantic Time zone.

For the most part, the above statement is correct, however, there are towns in Labrador that use the same time as Newfoundland. These towns are located in the southeastern section of Labrador and use Newfoundland Time due to the relatively close proximity and economic ties to Newfoundland.

Reportedly, there are also very small communities in Labrador that use an unofficial time zone. The locations that use an unofficial time zone are close to Schefferville, Quebec. Although these communities are officially using the Atlantic Time zone, they instead unofficially use the Eastern Time zone so they can share the same time as Schefferville. Time Genie hasn't been able to identify or find any of these communities as they really are small.

What's most interesting about the time in Newfoundland and Labrador is that Newfoundland uses a non–standard time zone offset. Instead of being on the hour, Newfoundland's time zone is on the half hour.
