When Did People Settle In Canada

The second group of people to enter Canada were the EskiDlo8. They crossed the Bering Strait from Asia less than 3,0tD years ago. There are few records of their early movements. The first white settlers in Canada were the French. They came in greatest numbers to Quebec, but also to Nova Scotia, where they cleared farms on the southern side of the Bay of Fundy.

The French built their citadel at Quebec City, where the St. Lawrence River narrows, and carved farms out of the forests in the territory. By the time of the British conquest in 1763, there were about 60,000 French in Canada, living chie8y between Quebec and Montreal. There were not many  British in  Canada until the American Revolutionary War drove large northward.

Throughout the nineteenth century, thousands of British immigrants came to Canada. The descendants of these peoples from England, Scotland, and Ireland now make up about half the population.

Around the turn of the century, immigrants came in increasing numbers from Europe, and the largest numbers came from Central and Eastern Czechs, Poles, Rumanians, and Ukrainians.
