France was active as a cultural leader in the early 16th century. One particular area in which they lead was the exploration of the New World.

By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebec, and the French Acadian presence in the Maritimes had reached 500. The French founded Lower Canada, thus becoming one of the two great founding nations of Canada.
