Just off of Newfoundland, you can reach the islands of St.Pierre Miquelon. While these islands are right off of the coast of Newfoundland in Canada, these islands are still legally a part of France! The Islands of St.Pierre Miquelon is the only land in all of Canada that was not settled by the British when Canada was established and inhabited. Interestingly, despite being so close to Canada, the tiny island’s customs and traditions more closely resemble the French lifestyle than the Canadian one. They even use the Euro as their local currency! The island is too tiny for its inhabitants to sustain themselves through things like farming. The main economic activity is fishing, although other, shadier activities like smuggling used to be a pretty important part of their economy as well. In fact, the island was important during US prohibition, when alcohol was funneled through Canada to the US.
