 Canadian Literature

Question: -01) It is important to know the history of a nation in order to understand its literature. Keeping this in mind trace the different stages of Canadian history from the First settlers to the present age.



Canadians’ lives are measured by the land’s moods, seasons, and weathers. The Canadian countryside, on the other hand, is anything from benign. The outlines of the Canadian civilisational epics are mostly on the hardships and sorrow of pioneering families.Nonetheless, it is the land that provides a sense of who Canadians truly are. According to Northrop Frye, entering the United States entails crossing an ocean; whereas, entering Canada entails being silently devoured by an alien continent. Canada’s narrative is one of transforming a strange continent into a country that is a preferred destination for immigrants.

It is a country of inventions, like the Inuit Igloo’s architecture, the birch Ewood boat, and the toggle head on an Inuit seal harpoon. Among Canada’s indigenous peoples, scholars have recognised at least fifty cultures and twelve languages. In the sixteenth century, the Amerindians’ societies (a word used to refer to all tribal societies in North America) were diverse, with the Athapaskan tribes of the Arctic area being egalitarian, while some tribes on the west coast were stratified and slave owners. While these cultures were distinct, they did share several characteristics. Two such characteristics are spirituality and a knowledge of the natural world and surroundings.

Unlike the Judaeo-Christian perspective, which holds that man, created in the image of God, is destined to rule the world. Native Americans believe that divinity exists inside all living things and that man has no special claim to it. At the time of interaction between the two, the Europeans were unable to grasp this all-encompassing spirituality, which is a common element of all Amerindian religions and beliefs.

Prior to initial encounter with European traders, many Native tribes had established lines of commerce among themselves. Copper, iron, flint, walrus ivory, bird features, and birch wood boats were traded between northern tribes. Similarly, hunters in the woods exchanged furs for maize and tobacco cultivated by the Great Lakes region’s peoples. However, the Native peoples’ awareness of nature and the environment was extremely beneficial to European traders and setters who utilised it to exploit natural resources for commercial gain. By 1600, it is believed that around 1,000 ships were involved in commercial operations involving the trading of fur, ivory, skins, and cod oil along Canada’s northwestern coastal seas. Eventually, the fur trade became the primary mode of commerce between Amerindians and Europeans.

The Portuguese were the first to explore the new globe in order to increase their commerce and territory… Spaniards followed suit through conquest, building an international empire. The French and English were not to be left behind in this rush to discover gold, spices, and other riches in distant lands.

Henry VII, the first Tudor King, commissioned John Cabot, an Italian explorer who discovered and claimed the Atlantic coast of North America in 1947. Cabot’s discovery sparked England’s interest in the fisheries in what is now Atlantic Canada.

In 1534, during his first trip, Jacques Carrier gained ownership of the area in the name of the King of France by erecting a cross on the Gaspe Peninsula’s beaches. This quickly developed into a fishing port and supply hub for New France. During his following travels, he made contact with the Stadacona (Quebec) Indians and forcibly removed two Indians to France. In 1608, John Champlain constructed a fortified trading station at Quebec, an ideal site to encourage commerce and serve as a foundation for the founder’s vision of colonising the distant area for France. In 1663, King Louis XIV of France established New France as a royal colony.

Both the British and the French built colonies in various sites throughout Newfoundland, Quebec, and Montreal and were involved in the fisheries and fur trade. However, Quebec fell to the British forces in 1759 in the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, thus ending New France. In 1763, after the conclusion of the Seven Years’ War between England and France, New France became a British Colony known as Quebec. Quebec’s borders were enlarged by the Quebec Act of 1774, which also safeguarded the French language and Catholic faith. Thus, Great Britain gained control of all of Canada’s colonies, which were administered by governors nominated by England.

Essentially, the fur trade was a northern industry. It attracted Europeans across the continent along waterways that offered access to the continent’s most attractive fiu-bearing regions. It established frequent interaction between Northern First Nations and the world of European trade and technology. Additionally, it assured that the northwest would remain a British colony rather than an American one. Without concluding treaties, the European immigrants came to visit and decided to stay indefinitely.

By the seventeenth and nineteenth century, it became necessary to expand northwestward in pursuit of beaver and other resources. By 1789, the North West Company had reached Lake Athabasca and had completed its exploration of the Mackenzie River. By 1793, it had reached the Pacific. This was accomplished with the assistance of indigenous peoples who taught European explorers and settlers how to operate a canoe. This 3,500-mile stretch of communication from British Columbia to Montreal was made possible by the Amerindians’ centuries-old birch-wood boat.

By the late eighteenth century, British North America was divided into seven governmental units: Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island, and Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Lower Canada, and Upper Canada, as well as a large western realm nominally controlled by the Hudson’s Bay Company. The seven were connected in various ways to Great Britain and shared a great deal in common. None possessed political autonomy. They were mostly under the jurisdiction of the British imperial headquarters. Their economy, being preindustrial societies, were reliant on the Empire.

On July 1, 1867, the United Province of Canada (which included Upper and Lower Canada), New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia established a federal union known as the Dominion of Canada. It was quickly expanded to include Manitoba and the North West Territories in 1970, British Columbia in 1871, Prince Edward Island in 1873, and Newfoundland in 1949.

Thus, the years 1867–1919 were critical in the formation of the transcontinental nation-state. The dependent colonial life gave way to a nationhood founded on the dynamism of Canada, as seen by its accomplishments during World War I. Within a decade after the Confederation’s establishment. The Canadian country grew substantially in size, extending from sea to sea. RUPART’S LAND was acquired from the colonial Hudson Bay Company between 1868 and 1870 in order to carve up Manitoba and the North Western Territories. Several years later, British Columbia, Prince Edward Island, Alberta, and Saskatchewan joined the Confederation as well.
