What is the name of the first european settlement?
The first European settlement in the lands now part of the Canadian Confederation would be the Viking settlement at what is now called L'Anse aux Meadows in Newfoundland. The exact name used for the settlement by the Vikings is not known but it is part of the area they called Vinland. The Vikings also appeared to have settled on Baffin Island, an area they called Helluland.
