Social and Cultural Traits in Canada

SocialPioneers and trappers played an important part in the development of Canadian culture, from the French who originally settled in, what was then called, New France, to the British activities in the Hudson Bay area. Unlike the agricultural model utilised by European colonists in the Unites States, the greater emphasis placed on trading (particularly for beaver furs) enabled better preservation of First Nations cultures and languages. The historical mixture of influences by First Nations, British, and French, cultures has led to the percieved view of Canada as being a very multicultural place.
