History
Canada has been inhabited since around 24,500 BC in its Yukon Territory. After European contact beginning in the fifteenth century, many Native Americans became sick from diseases introduced by the explorers, and their
numbers dwindled. Early European explorers came from Scandinavia, Italy and Portugal. The French first explored Canada beginning in 1534 with Jacques Cartier, who claimed territory for France. The English claimed Newfoundland in 1583, followed by the thirteen colonies that later became the United States. Fur traders dominated the north, leading to the Beaver wars. France lost many of its North American colonies to the British at the end of the seven years war, which ended in 1763. The war of 1812, fought mainly in northern North America, resulted in British and Irish immigration to Canada, increasing its population.

In 1840, Canada was united, becoming the Province of Canada. Canada's colonial roots are reflected in its status as a Commonwealth of Britain under the crown. The languages spoken in Canada also reflect its early colonial history. Both English and French are spoken in Canada, though French is primarily spoken in the province of Quebec, which was under French control for many years.

To the south, Canada shares the world's longest land border with the United States, as well as the world's longest coastline. Alaska, completely separated from the contiguous United States, is located to the north-west of Canada, extending out toward Russia.

Canada's terrain is mountainous, with the coast mountains and rocky mountains, and heavily forested. Canada contains more fresh water than any other country in the world in its 31,700 lakes.
