What were the social and economic factors of European imperialism?

They set up colonies for the resources that North America had. This was untouched land. In Europe there was a craze for beavers because they made hats out of the skins. After all the beavers in Europe were extinct, they came to Canada for more. That's why the Europeans traded with the first nations, metals and guns in exchange for skins. The countries in Europe were usually always at war with each other so to prove that this country was more powerful than the other, they set up colonies to show prestige. They also brought resources to Europe since they was a growing demand. The Europeans were curious on what was on the other side of the world. Christianity was the most common religion in Europe but their was other religions like Catholics and Protestants. Most of the Europeans wanted to spread Christianity around the world.

In what ways did European imperialism impact the social and economic structures of Aboriginal societies?

French

British

They would trade with the first nations so the Europeans could get the skins and furs and the first nations would get the guns, knifes and alcohol. One of the problems with this trade was the alcohol. Many first nations peoples died from the alcohol and the Europeans would continue give more alcohol. The Europeans were changing the first nations way of life. Sometimes the change was good but most of the time the change was bad. The guns, knifes and horses were good but the alcohol, craze for the resources form the Europeans was awful and could cause death.

What role did the British government play in the settlement of North America?

The British sent much more people to explore the area and settle into colonies. When the 13 colonies started 90,000 people were habitants and in 100 years, the population grew 1.5 million people. At New France in the same time, the population started at 3,000 people and in 100 years the population only grew to 61,000 people. The british were much more focused to build and grow a colony in North America.
