HISTORY and ECONOMY The land of today's Canada has been inhabited for millennia by various Aboriginal peoples. British and French colonial expeditions explored and settled the region's Atlantic coast in the late 15th century. France ceded nearly all of its colonies in North America to Britain in 1763 after the Seven Years' War. In 1867, with the union of three British North American colonies through Confederation, Canada was formed as a federal dominion of four provinces. This began a process of increasing autonomy, culminating in the Canada Act Canada is a federal state governed as a parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy, with Queen Elizabeth II as its head of state. The country is officially bilingual and multicultural. Canada's advanced economy is one of the largest in the world, relying chiefly upon its rich natural resources (oil, nickel, zinc, uranium, gold and lead) and well-developed trade networks, especially with the United States, with which it has had a long and complex relationship.
The First Nations The characteristics of Canadian Aboriginal societies included permanent settlements, agriculture, complex societal hierarchies, and trading networks. There were upto 2million aboriginal peoples in the 15th century. But after the the European arrival only 25% remained Aboriginal peoples in present-day Canada include the First Nations, Inuits, and Métis. The Métis are a mixed-blood people who originated in the mid-17th century when First Nations and Inuit people married European settlers.
