The Times That Are (French: Le règne du jour) is a Canadian documentary film, which was directed by Pierre Perrault and released in 1967.[1] A sequel to his 1963 film Pour la suite du monde, the film follows Alexis Tremblay and his family on a trip to France to visit their ancestral roots in Normandy and Brittany.[2]

The film was a Canadian Film Award finalist for Best Feature Film at the 20th Canadian Film Awards in 1968, but did not win.[3] It was followed by The River Schooners (Les voitures d'eau), the third and final film in Perrault's "Île-aux-Coudres Trilogy", in 1968.[2]
