3 From European Contact to Quebec s Independence Movement
4 The First Nations are the native peoples of Canada. They came from Asia over 12,000 years ago. They crossed the Bering Land Bridge that joined Russia to Alaska. There were 12 tribes that made up the First Nations.
6 The Inuit are one of the First Nation tribes. They still live in Canada today. In 1999, Canada s government gave the Inuit Nunavut Territory in northeast Canada.
8 The first explorers to settle Canada were Norse invaders from the Scandinavian Peninsula. In 1000 CE, they built a town on the northeast coast of Canada and established a trading relationship with the Inuit. The Norse deserted the settlement for unknown reasons. Europeans did not return to Canada until almost 500 years later
10 The Italian explorer, John Cabot, sailed to Canada s east coast in Cabot claimed an area of land for England (his sponsor) and named it Newfoundland.
12 Jacques Cartier sailed up the St. Lawrence River in He claimed the land for France. French colonists named the area New France.
14 In 1608, Samuel de Champlain built the first permanent French settlement in New France called Quebec. The population grew slowly. Many people moved inland to trap animals. Hats made of beaver fur were in high demand in Europe.
17 European fur traders were joined by French farmers, merchants, and missionaries from the Catholic Church. They brought with them French laws, traditions, & religion. France wouldn t let anyone move to New France who was not Catholic.
19 The British colonized the region south of New France. They saw New France s success in fur trapping and wanted to take control of the fur trade. This led to the French and Indian War in 1754.
20 Great Britain fought for control of Canadian territory and the fur trade. It was Great Britain and the Iroquois Indians versus France and the Huron Indians. Great Britain conquered Quebec in 1754 and forced France to sign the Treaty of Paris in 1763.
21 This gave Britain control of all lands east of the Mississippi River, except for 2 islands off the coast of Newfoundland. The British forced Nova Scotia s French-speaking people to leave. Nova Scotia s French went to another French colony Louisiana. Descendants of these people are the Cajuns.
23 In 1776, Americans gained independence from Great Britain. This initiated a huge cultural change in Canada. Americans who did not believe in independence left America and moved to Quebec. These people were called Loyalists because they were loyal to Great Britain. As a result, Quebec began to have people who spoke English as well as French.
24 Many Loyalists did not want to live among French-speaking Canadians. Cultural difference between the English speakers & French speakers sparked many conflicts. In 1774, British government passed the Quebec Act.
25 The British allowed the French to stay in Quebec, but continued to control the region. The Quebec Act guaranteed the French the right to maintain their culture (language, religion, traditions).
26 It gave French Canadians in Quebec the right to continue practicing the Catholic religion and allowed French civil law. Loyalists were irritated with the new political & cultural power of the French. They could not own land or have representation in Quebec s government. The differences among the two groups eventually led to a re-division of the country.
27 Most English speaking citizens lived in Upper Canada (Ontario). Most French speaking citizens lived in Lower Canada (Quebec).
29 During this war, the French and British worked together against the United States, who tried to invade Canada. War resulted in a draw, but it defined the US-Canadian border & increased a sense of Canadian nationalism. Both French Canadians & English Canadians joined to protect their land they were more united than ever before.
31 French Canadians and British Canadians realized that they hated being under British rule. They thought that Great Britain was too far away to understand their economic & political needs.
32 In 1837, Canadians began to rebel against British control. Britain sent a government reformer to examine the Canadian problem. As a result of the inquiry, Britain discovered an economic need to unify the 2 Canadian provinces. In 1841, Upper & Lower Canada were united, establishing the Province of Canada.
33 During the 1860s, Canadian leaders discussed the confederation of all British North American Colonies. In 1867, the British North America Act created a federation union of Canada. It joined four colonies (Quebec, Ontario, New Brunswick, & Nova Scotia). The four colonies became provinces joined by a unifying constitution. Britain accepted the agreement because they were glad to be rid of the responsibility of protecting the colonies (too expensive).
35 The British North America Act allowed each region to sell goods more easily to one another. This improved trade helped the economy. Soon there was enough money to build a railroad across the country. The Transcontinental Railroad was built in People could now easily travel from the Atlantic Ocean to Pacific Ocean.
37 When Canada became a confederation in 1867, there were only 4 provinces. Leaders desired to expand the new country from the Atlantic to the Pacific. They bought land from the Hudson s Bay Company. They thought the purchase would be a simple process, but problems occurred with the native peoples.
38 Eventually the First Nations (Inuit) agreed to relocate to reservations (now Nunavut). Transcontinental Railroad was built on this land. Soon, 3 new provinces and 1 territory were created: Manitoba, British Columbia, Prince Edward Island, and the Northwest Territories.
40 The railroad increased the shipment of goods across Canada. It increased travel from coast to coast. It caused the creation of new provinces and territories. The railroad was also the birth of Canadian nationalism. Before the railroad, most people only thought of themselves as belonging to their province; after, they felt as if they were part of one country.
42 Gold was discovered along the western coast of Canada in Canada s government created Yukon territory in 1898 to meet the needs of the area s growing population.
45 This land was originally part of Northwest Territories, but by early 1900s, many people wanted this to change. Reason 1: The economy had shifted from fur trade to farming, mining, logging & railway. Reason 2: The population grew quickly because of the new industries. Reason 3: The area could not afford everything people needed (like schools). By forming new provinces, they could collect taxes to pay for these things.
47 Canada still had close ties with Britain and felt they should contribute in the fight against Germany. They sent military forces, raw materials, & food to Europe. Canada s contribution changed the way the world viewed the country. Canada was now a union that was able to compete with world powers. WWI also increased Canadian nationalism.
48 Newfoundland joined the country of Canada because: Canada promised to help them by building many things such as railroads and roads. Britain didn t want the cost of supporting Newfoundland anymore.
49 In the 1970s, the Inuit wanted to create a territory called Nunavut. They wanted their own territory so that they could start making decisions for themselves. They needed their own government. They wanted control of their land. For many years Canada had used the resources of the Arctic without asking the Inuit. Inuit still live the same way that their ancestors did they use traditional methods for survival.
52 Be sure all 14 dates are written on your timeline. Label each event make it short and sweet (you don t have to use complete sentences). Draw a simple illustration to accompany at least seven of the events. Use thin markers or colored pencils to make your timeline colorful and creative.
54 Have you ever seen a sign that marks a significant event in history? We have them all over our country, and now you get to create a marker that could be used in Canada! Review your History of Canada notes. Which event do you think is the most important event in Canada s history? You are going to be creating a marker that will tell tourists about the significance of that event.
55 Directions: 1. Choose your event and write what it is in the CIRCLE on the top of the historical marker. 2. Next, write a short description of the event. 3. Then, write a brief opinion statement on why you think that this event is important to Canada s history. 4. At the bottom, write the place where your marker will be located (province, territory, city, physical feature, etc.). 5. Draw an illustration that symbolizes your event.
