Parliament Buildings - Senate Chamber Clock
The Act to Provide for the Time in Canada Being in Advance of the Accepted Standard Time During the Summer Monthspassed in the spring of 1918, ensured that all offices and services of the Dominion government operated under Daylight Savings Time. This ornate clock, which still stands over the Senate chamber entrance, reflects the artistry of the carvings that adorn the Upper House. Many symbols relevant to Canada have been incorporated into the clock and its surroundings, including the maple leaf, the English rose, the French fleur-de-lis and the King’s crown which rests atop of the clock’s face.
