Orginally both English and French fishermen set up bases in and around Newfoundland. A little later the French built a line of forts and settlements in Nova Scotia and down the Lawrence river and founded The company of New France. French fur traders have penetrated deep into the interior and the trading post of Sault Marie has been established, in the centre of the Great Lakes system. Back east, in the region of Quebec and Montreal, farming settlements have spread along the river banks.
