Once upon a time, an italian navigator named John Cabot was going about his sailing business on orders from the King of England. When all of a sudden, he found some new land.
As John got closer to the land, he realized something. This land was surrounded by lots and lots of cod fish! John knew that all his friends in England loved fish, so he told them all about this wonderful land. When John told them about this wonderous land of fish, they were very excited and wanted to fish there as soon as possible. So they got on their own boats and drove all the way to this new found land. Some other people overheard about this wonderous land of fish, so they joined John's friends on their trip.
When John's friends and their followers got to this new land, they started fishing right away. Some of John's friends got off their boats and unto the land to package most off the fish they caught, and so did their followers. They were packaging the fish so they could send it back home to the rest of their friends. Many of John's friends ended up living in the houses they made to package their fish. Until, they eventually started to create a town of sorts. They continued fishing and expanding their fishing area all across the land known today as the Atlantic coast of Canada. The first place John ran into is known as Newfoundland

The Fur Trade
One day, a french man named Jacques Cartier was exploring a new continent and claiming some of its land on behalf of the french king. He was looking for some gold and diamonds, but he couldn't find any. However, he did find many beavers, and he really liked their fur, so he went and told his king all about them.
