What is happening in Canada in 1648CE

In the 1580s, English and French fishermen set up bases in and around Newfoundland. A little later the French begin building a line of forts and settlements in Nova Scotia and down the St Lawrence river. In 1627, the company of New France was founded. French fur traders have penetrated deep into the interior and, in 1639, the trading post of Sault Ste Marie was established, in the centre of the Great Lakes system. Back east, in the region of Quebec and Montreal, farming settlements spread along the river banks.
