Is Newfoundland in Atlantic Standard time?

Newfoundland lies squarely in the eastern half of the Atlantic Time Zone, exactly three and a half hours from Greenwich.

Each time zone is 15 degrees of longitude wide. Distance between the zones is greatest at the equator. It shrinks to zero at the poles because of the curvature of Earth. Since the equator is about 24,902 miles long, the distance between time zones at the equator is approximately 1,038 miles.

How does the Newfoundland Time Zone keep time?
