One of the earliest examples of fur trade in North America is represented by a famous French explorer Jacques Cartier. He led three voyages into the Gulf of St Lawrence, trading a small amount with the first nations along his way.
Columbus left from Palos de la Frontera on August 3rd, 1942 with three ships. At 2am, land was spotted by a man named Rodrigo de Triana. Columbus claimed the New World.
John Cabot was born in 1451 in a small town called Genoa, Italy. (The same town and year as Columbus.) When he moved to England, he became the king's close friend. In 1496, he sailed to and made a map of Newfoundland. In 1498, he set sail again with 5 ships, however Cabot was never heard from again.
Around the early 10th century, Vikings (Norse sailors comely from around Greenland) sailed to North America, landing and settling on her lands. They started to colonize but nothing settled permanently, while the other colonies in Greenland thrived for almost 500 years.
The "proto-Inuit" are the ancestors of all Inuit in Canada today. Around the year AD 500, they arrived in Alaska from north-eastern Siberia. Then, in AD 1000, they came to what is now Nunavut, Canada. Finally, by the 13th century, a subgroup then moved east to Greenland.
