HISTORY OF CANADAFirst people went to Canada between 15,000 and 30,000 years ago across a land bridge that joined Asia and North America. A.D. 1000, the Viking explorer Leif Eriksson reached Newfoundland, Canada. 16th century, French and British settlers arrived. There were four wars between 1689-1763 over land.The French and Indian War left the British in control of Canada but French influence remains strong even today. In 1867, Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick combined to form a dominion with its own government, parliament, and prime minister. Manitoba joined soon after. In 1931, Canada became an independent nation.
