France was among the first European powers to send explorers to the Americas in the 1500s. What began as exploratory missions designed to seek an optimal route to Asia, soon turned into a mission to colonize and create permanent settlements in the region. This chapter retraces the history of French presence in North America, particularly the region that came to be known as New France. In doing so, it shows how colonialism served as a conduit for transmitting French urbanism to this vast region. It also suggests that French colonialism was not the only conduit for transmitting French urbanism in early North America. The fact that parts of the region which never experienced French colonialism also boast elements of French urbanism is employed to bolster this position.
