The complete and total decimation of New France is near if we cannot increase population imidiately. The immigration rate of people to new france is declining over time, and this is causing large amounts of unmarried men to continue wokring without finding women to produce a population for the new nation, thus resulting in the population declining over time and ultimatly causing an impending failure to create a nation. In order to attract more to immigrate to the new nation, and to encourage the growth of population within new france the benefits must be increased in order to intice immigrants and citizens alike to help expand and grow the nation.
In 1604 the first wave of immigrants from france had come over to the new land, and most of them were young men, and ever since then we've had few women, with the only major waves being the Filles Du Roi, and the some 2,000 women apart of the first 10,000 immigrants, all from the years 1612 to 1636. The current state of new france sems to be quite the perdicimant, we have large amounts of men, and in comparison miniscule amounts of women, we have such a depreciaion in immigration rates that if our repopulation rate decreases enough we could possibly just run out of people in the nation. Currently our attempts at taking on the scenario have been faulty by rewarding the families children Steps Involved:
1. We need to vouche for the benefits of moving more, this can easily be acheived by increasing propoganda within france. 2. After that we need to adjust benefits:
Increase the amount of land given to new immigrants
Increase the amount of money given per 10 children
increase imports and the growing of fruit to abolish rumors of scurvy 3. After this is setteld we will need to emberse current citizens of the difference for the new benefits.
The Seigneurial System
NewFrance was a French colony in present-day Quebec and north-eastern Ontario. The colony lasted from 1534, its discovery, when Jacques Cartier was sent to find a route to the Orient and precious gems and metals, to its formal surrender in 1759. An important part in the history of NewFrance was the fur trade, as it brought many new things to the Natives living in Canada and helped NewFrance develop. Europeans traded their supplies with the First Nations peoples for fur pelts, which were very fashionable and expensive in France at the time. Before the Europeans came to Canada, many Native groups, including the Huron, had already lived in the area and established a trading system. When the French claimed the territory they lived on, they became part of the trading system too. The French introduced many new things to the Natives, like manufactured goods such as alcohol and weapons, while the Natives presented the French with not only fur, but knowledge on how to survive in the winter, and food without which survival would have been hard.

...The Society of NewFrance
There were many early expeditions from Europe to North America, most in search of a
Northwest Passage that linked the Atlantic to the Pacific, thus leading to the wealth of Asia .
These excursions alerted Europeans of the resources North America offered and this attraction of
fish and furs stimulated annual voyages from Europe to reap the benefits of the New World. As
appealing as this discovery was, Europeans considered this New World a harsh environment and
few thought of settling permanently, but eventually political and economic interests inspired
Europeans establish settlements in North America . Overseas colonies were regarded as an
opportunity to gain political advantage amongst European monarchs in constant competition for
power and glory .
While English settlement in eastern North America was influenced by the fish-rich
waters, French colonization was influenced by the desire for even greater riches . In 1534,
Jacques Cartier was sent to the New World to claim the land for France and search for the gold
that was believed to be in line for discovery. After failure to find the gold that was anticipated
and Cartier’s unsuccessful colonization attempt, France lost interest in North America
settlement . It wasn’t until 1600 that the demand for furs significantly increased and France
...ownership of this new continent, and France and England would fight over the country known as Canada. NewFrance was first established by Jacques Cartier in 1534. While Montcalm deserves much of the blame for the loss of Quebec in 1759, NewFrance, in fact, was destined to fall because of the policies and approaches that had been taken since the earliest foundations of the colony. The mercantilist standpoint of Jean-Baptist Colbert was also a large benefactor to the downfall of NewFrance. This policy crippled NewFrance and constricted its growth economically, militarily and population wise. The unnecessary expansion to the west also constricted the colonies growth as it meant that the population of the colonies could not grow well since men would run off into the woods. This also spread NewFrance over a vast indefensible area of land. Montcalm is to be blamed for losing the ultimate and last battle for NewFrance, the siege of Quebec in 1759, having been outwitted by Wolfe and beaten on the Plains of Abraham. Montcalm was guaranteed that defeat as he had made several strategic mistakes that cost him the battle.
While the downfall of NewFrance was largely attributed to Montcalm’s failure at Quebec, early French approaches to the policies...
...NewFrance was a new world far from home. Today Canada may be a hotspot for immigration, but back in the 17th century it was far from being an ideal land to start a new life. Despite various forms of persuasion and tactics, France had an incredibly difficult time colonizing Canada for many decades primarily due to the idea of emigration and the reluctance revolving around it.
The act of leaving one’s country to settle in a new or foreign one can be quite daunting. The consideration of many points, both good and bad, would need to be taken into account before doing so. Factoring the length of time it takes to travel to a destination by ship, and the various misfortunes entailed with such a trip, one could say that the voyage itself “could have been a deterrent to migration” (Moogk 468). Apart from the physical journey, to “dislodge people from home and familiar surroundings” (Moogk 470), would be enough reason to cause individuals or families to be reluctant to colonize NewFrance. But even with these hardships involved with emigration, the benefits of moving can be quite appealing. At the time of recruitment, parts of France were facing great hardship in the forms of “hunger and unemployment” (Moogk 470). It is no wonder that it was during these times that there were peaks in recruiting engagés (indentured workers) for colony work....
...Like any other European nations, the history of France has started with movements of people, goods, and ideas. Since its prehistoric times, France has been a crossroads of travel, trade and invasion. Because of is temperate climate and endless prairies, ancient people often settled in France while migrating to somewhere else. Early days, tribes of Celts and other people lived in what is now France. Later Julius Caesar conquered the entire region between 58 and 51 B.C. Three basic European ethnic stocks, Celtic, Latin, and Teutonic, have blended over the centuries to make up its present population. France is one of the worldwide leading trading nations.
Historically, agriculture was one of France’s major industries because of its flat terrain and warm temperature. In the other hand, France is a leading producer of wines as well as chemical products, energy products, steel, cement, luxury goods, etc. The culture of France has deeply influenced that of the entire Western Europe, particularly in the areas of art and letters, and Paris has been regarded as the fountainhead of French culture. France first attained cultural preeminence in Europe during the Middle Ages. During 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries, monarchs assembled Europe’s most talented artists and artisans. Wealth also created a leisure class, which had both the time and the means for developing elegance...
Gargoyles: a Symbol of France
Gargoyles were important symbols adorning medieval Catholic churches, relating to Satan and original sin, but they were also important architectural features created with a purpose, that of a waterspout. Gargoyles predate Gothic architecture and have risen in popularity recently, although the symbolism has evolved from Catholicism. From their origins, throughout the mass building of cathedrals in Catholic France, to ornamental chimeras today, gargoyles have been important to the symbolism of France.
Gargoyles were created for a purpose which is reflected in the word origin. The French originator is gargoille, which translates to throat. It from this French word that gargoyles are named. This is not universal. Although the predominance of gargoyles in medieval gothic architecture influences the English use of gargoyle, the Italian term is also a reflection of the original purpose with doccione o gronda sporgente which means protruding gutter. The German and Dutch words for gargoyle also reflect their architectural purpose with both alluding to water flowing.1
Although today the word gargoyle is used to describe any beastly carving on a building, technically gargoyles are only the figures which were used as water spouts. Chimera is the term for ornamental carvings, thus some of the famous “gargoyles” of Notre Dame are in fact chimera, such as the most famous spitting “gargoyle” of...
...primarily for mainstream music news, Rolling Stone does employ international caliber journalists, and certainly should be printing a slightly higher quality drivel than a question likely to be posed by a child. The reader is not left with the impression of Peter Jennings, earnestly attempting to glean important threads of a political candidate’s priorities, but rather of a chat between friends, making silly jokes about a possible leader neither would choose to follow. There is a great amount of bias in journalism today, and not just on a level of the individual writer. The fact that entire news media outlets have a political bias one direction or another has become common knowledge, with no significant impact upon their credibility or popularity in the eyes of the consumer. This is an example of the low standards today’s populace holds the industry accountable for, and begs the question: How did bias become so integrated in an industry founded in professionalism and objectivity since before my parents’ generation? It’s really no surprise when one looks at how professionalism and standards have crumbled over the last few decades.
When the news was aired on television through the 50s and 60s, news programming would typically run from 7.30 to 11 PM on the major networks- and there were no other channels. The news was presented in a calm and unbiased manor by actual professionals in the industry, and...
...this short essay, I chose a country I traveled to that opened my eyes to different cultures. France is a country full of diversity and a place I would feel honored to return to, in hopes of learning more from the culture they have to offer.
Traveling to France I expected to be entranced by the grand architecture and art that had contributed to history, I was mistaken. I found the heart and soul of the nation in the people. I realized, after much travel, that it is the people and their culture continually that amaze me.
After exploring France, I discovered the invigoration of hearing a dissimilar language and learning how to adapt to the new environment. While some travelers carried the pride of their nation, I found it invigorating to assimilate into my new surroundings. In order to accomplish this, I decided to learn French in hopes that continual study of common practices would allow me to live the life of a Frenchmen.
Upon arrival I found it easy to adopt the concept of public transportation, and each metro ride became more satisfying as I met varying people of varying nations. I then adjusted my eating schedules and found a taste for French cuisine. With this, I commenced greeting my fellow Frenchmen with, “Bonjour monsieur!” I was determined to not leave as a stereotypical tourist. I made it my goal to experience the nooks and crannies far from tourist France that...
