What is happening in Canada in 1789CE

The activities of the French fur traders covered a vast area of northern North America, their push into the interior spurred on by competition from the traders of the British Hudson’s Bay Company (founded 1670), active in northern Canada. To secure their hold over their sphere, the French built a line of forts and trading stations along the Ohio and Mississippi rivers and their tributaries. At the southern end of the Mississippi-Missouri-Ohio watershed they established their colony of New Orleans (founded, 1718).

In the east, the wars with Britain led ultimately (1763) to the complete elimination of French power in North America. During, and immediately after, the American War of Independence, thousands of American loyalists settled along the upper St Lawrence, on the east coast and in Nova Scotia. In 1784 the maritime province of New Brunswick was created for the loyalist settlers, who have settled in and around the St John’s River.
