Why is Samuel de Champlain called the father of new France?

The father of New France.

The cancellation of De Monts's fur monopoly in 1607 brought the Port Royal settlement to a temporary end. Champlain persuaded his leader to allow him to take colonists and "go and settle on the great River St. Lawrence, with which I was familiar through a voyage that I had made there." In 1608 he founded France's first permanent Canadian colony. It was at Quebec, at the foot of a great rocky cape on the north shore, which formed a natural fortress barring the way upstream to the interior.

The early years of the Quebec colony were hard, and the population grew slowly. Champlain administered its affairs and took personal charge of an organized exploration of the unknown interior. Where he did not actually travel himself, he sent other men. One was Etienne Brule, the first white man to cross Pennsylvania and later the first to see Lake Superior. Champlain himself discovered Lake Champlain (1609); and in 1615 he journeyed by canoe up the Ottawa, through Lake Nipissing, and down Georgian Bay to the heart of the Huron country, near Lake Simcoe. During these journeys Champlain aided the Hurons in battles against the Iroquois Confederacy. As a result, the Iroquois became mortal enemies of the French.

In 1629 Champlain suffered the humiliation of having to surrender his almost starving garrison to an English fleet that appeared before Quebec. He was taken to England as a prisoner. Peace, however, had been declared between England and France before the surrender, and New France was accordingly restored to the French. Champlain returned from Europe to spend his few remaining years. He became governor of New France in 1633.

How did Samuel de Champlain explore New France?

In 1608 Champlain returned to New France. On this trip he wanted to build a settlement along the St. Lawrence River. The French also figured that Acadia (Samuel de Champlain first piece of land discovered by him in 1604) was to far from the center of Fur Trading. Champlain picked a site close to where Jacques Cartier occupied in 1535 which was called Stadacona. The river narrowed so it was an excellent Harbour. He started a permanent Settlement called Kebec (Quebec) which means "Where the river Narrows". After that he befriended the Aboriginals neighbours who showed the French around and Champlain mapped a lot of these areas.
