History

The first people that lived in Canada were native Indian people, primarily the Inuit (Eskimos). According to history the explorer Leiv Eriksson reached the coast of East Canada around the year 1000. The Italian-English voyager John Cabot rediscovered the country in1497.

Canada was taken by the French in 1534 by a man called Jacques Cartier. He called the land “New France”.  At the time the population in Canada was almost only French. In the next few decades thousands of British immigrants moved to Canada. During the 17th century the French and the British fought against each other and the French were forced to give up Canada. The country became a British colony in 1867.

 

Today Canada is an independent member of the British Commonwealth.
