The Government of Canada specifies the ISO 8601 format for all-numeric dates ( YYYY - MM - DD ; for example, 2021-09-12). It recommends writing the time using the 24-hour clock (13:12) for maximum clarity in both Canadian English and Canadian French, but also allows the 12-hour clock (1:12 p.m.) in English.
