Notice: Printing Error in 2017 Alberta Guide to Hunting Regulations for Sunrise/Sunset Table

The Sunrise/Sunset Table on page 48 and 49 in the published print regulations does not take into consideration the ending of Daylight Savings Time which occurs at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, November 5th, 2017.

Times stated from November 5th forward should be in accordance with Mountain Standard Time and should be an hour before the time currently stated. i.e. Nov 5 - Calgary Sunrise should read 7:36 a.m. and not 8:36 a.m.

To establish specific times for sunrise/sunset, refer to the National Research Council Canada website at:
