Well - slap me sideways and colour me purple - I did NOT know there was ever a time difference between eastern Ontario Canada, and Punta Cana!!

Only right now, I assume - not once we "spring ahead"??? Just making sure for our trip in August...

When we in Ontario are on standard time the time in the DR is the same, the DR does not do DLST so when we fall back they are 1 hr ahead

You got me wondering, just when do we "spring ahead"?

It isn't that far off:
