this is common once the RTC (real time clock) battery is depleted. Your camera will not remember the time and date without this battery. Here are the instructions from Canon on how to change it:

1. Confirm that the camera power is turned off.

2. Slide the memory card slot / battery cover lock and open the cover.

3. Hook your nail onto the date battery holder and lightly pull up.

7. Replace the battery holder and close the memory card slot / battery cover.

8. When the Date/Time menu appears set the date and time.
