The Arrival of the Europeans in North America
In 1534, famous explorer Jacques Cartier arrived in what is now known as Canada. It is debated who arrived where first, although evidence supports that Vikings had arrived earlier.
Whoever arrived in Canada first, I believe that the Vikings would have been able to take Cartier in a fist fight, and that's all that really matters in history.
The Natives, and Trading
The French decided to expand their territory into the newly discovered North American countries, and saw an opportunity to trade with the Natives. They seized this opportunity, but did not bring in huge amounts of riches for France.
The Natives and the French has a mutually beneficial relationship. The Natives received more advanced tools, and the French were taught by the Natives how to thrive in the harsh land of Canada.
New France Is Founded
New France is founded by Samuel de Champlain. He worked very hard in order to establish a successful colony for New France. He died in 1635.

Upper and Lower Canada
The Province of Quebec was split into two separate colonies in 1791. The two provinces were Upper, and Lower Canada. Upper Canada covered what is now Ontario, while Lower Canada covered what is now southern Quebec.
In 1837, the people of Upper and Lower Canada rebelled against the government, hoping for a more balanced system. They achieved their goals. and in 1840, Canada became one province, removing the Upper and Lower Canada seperation.
Canada was quickly becoming a very successful country. Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and other provinces are created in solidified throughout the years following. Canada is on a path to greatness. During this time period, the Canada we know and love was born.

Samuel de Champlain in all his glory
For many years, Britain and France were attacking each other back and forth. Britain eventually gained control of several French colonies including Acadia. It was vulnerable on all sides, making it easy for the enemies to attack. Over 10,000 people left Acadia after the British took control. Full on war was inevitable.
The British and the French battled over control in North America, over a course of seven years. Land was being battled for and switching hands often. Ultimately, the French troops were defeated, and Britain gained control of the majority of eastern North America.
