Because the Europeans who settled and colonized (some areas of) Canada were mainly from France. This created french-speaking areas that have remained until today.

Most French-speaking people you meet in Canada aren't french, they're Canadians.

French-speaking, but still very much Canadians.

'Course, if you're French speaking, and looking for another place to live, another french speaking nation would make the transition easier.

If you don't speak good english, Canada would be easier than, say Alaska.
