By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebec. By the same year 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. The family name Vernier has made many distinguished contributions in France and New France to the world of science, culture, religion, and education.
