At the beginning of the 17th century, several companies were interested in the fur trade in New France.
King Henry IV then granted the monopoly of the fur trade to a company, the Company of One Hundred Associates. In exchange, it must ensure that the colony gets populated. It must bring a certain number of settlers each year, distribute the land and ensure their survival.
