Transcript of Early Important Canadian Explorers

In April 1610, Hudson used Frobisher's map to find Hudson's Bay. Henry is famous in exploration because he went against all odds to find the North West Passage.
HENRY HUDSON
Samuel de Champlain is famous to Canadian exploration because he was the first to set up trading posts and settlements in early Canada. He was also the first person to ever do a detailed map. Samuel also established Quebec City in 1608 and Montreal in 1611.
SAMUEL DE CHAMPLAIN
Frobisher made his first trip in the summer of 1576. He explored the coast of Labrador. Then he sailed farther north. He discovered a bay near a large island, which was later named Baffin Island after William Baffin. At first, Frobisher thought the bay might be the Northwest Passage. He named it Frobisher Bay, after himself. He is important to exploration because he opened up Canada's North and set a path for future explorers.
MARTIN FROBISHER
In the month of July, 1534, Jacques Cartier claimed the Gaspe Peninsula for France. He also mapped out the Gulf of St. Lawrence. He is important to exploration because he mapped out part of Canada which allowed others to explore with more precision.
JACQUES CARTIER
In 1497 Cabot sailed west to find a trade route to Asia clear from trouble. He rediscovered Canada. Cabot is important to exploration because he tried to set up colonies within Canada.

WILLIAM BAFFIN
William Baffin, on his second voyage, discovered a place in 1615 called Baffin Island (he named it after himself). It was a very large island. He also, on the same voyage, used the first longitude points ever. He is famous to exploration because he figured out longitude.

LEIF ERIKSON
In 1000 he discovered Canada or it is thought that he did. They think his ship got blown off course and he and his Vikings landed on the coast of Newfoundland. The reports are not quite clear, but most historians agree that he was the first to find a place called North America. Leif Erikson's find was important to exploration because he was the first person to ever find Canada.
